Program Manager, Funding Ops & Limited Submissions (7398U) #26609 (at UC Berkeley)
Updated on March 21, 2019
Within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Berkeley Research Development Office (BRDO) is a diverse team of experts that works with faculty and research units across campus, with a mission of helping to increase research funding while decreasing faculty burden in applying for it. BRDO supports the development of large and strategic research proposals, provides training and proposal-related resources to support proposers across campus, finds and disseminates funding opportunities, and otherwise supports the priorities and responsibilities of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.
This position identifies funding opportunities and manages the limited submissions process for the Vice Chancellor of Research and the UC Berkeley campus. Limited submissions are funding opportunities that restrict the number of applications an institution may submit. As these opportunities are often strategic and competitive in nature, it is imperative for campus to maintain an effective, efficient, confidential, and fair process to facilitate selection of applicants through review by faculty peers and other experts. This process also provides feedback to internal applicants to help improve their future applications. In these ways, this position helps the campus advance the most competitive concepts for submission and strengthens other concepts in development for future opportunities.
