Cyber Center Fellows

The Cyber Center (CC) Fellows program fosters and enhances communication and collaboration among investigators in research areas of the Cyber Center. Faculty Fellows are selected on the basis of their expertise and willingness to demonstrate commitment to the mission of the Cyber Center. Faculty Fellows undertake significant roles in defining the Cyber Center Programs and outcomes. CC Fellows may include Purdue faculty and research staff and external partners, (both corporate and academic) who have expressed interest in Center programs or initiatives. CC Fellows undertake significant roles in defining the Cyber Center initiatives and outcomes.

The Cyber Center provides significant support for Faculty Fellows in the proposal creation process for large, multidisciplinary project opportunities. The Cyber Center acts as the proposal creation administrator and coordinator. In this role, Cyber Center personnel experienced with large project proposing and management facilitate definition of the proposal outline and assignment of proposal content to technical team members, monitor content submissions, and coordinate reviews of content among the team members. We can help to create additional materials such as a description of Discovery Park and its mission, goals and organization, definitions of previous educational outreach programs, and summaries of pertinent past and ongoing Discovery Park and Purdue research projects that can help to make your proposal more competitive.

Faculty Fellows receive timely information on available opportunities for collaboration, upcoming events and the interests of colleagues from across Purdue and other institutions. You will also be able to gain access to resources available for developing interdisciplinary proposals, publicizing new initiatives or events, and organizing training programs and internship opportunities for students.

As a Faculty Fellow you may be eligible for seed funds to acquire preliminary data for new sponsored research initiatives. Funding to meet university match requirements on grant proposals may be available. In addition you have access to a network of external collaborators and partners of the Cyber Center.

The benefits of being a Faculty Fellow and working with the Cyber Center on your next interdisciplinary proposal or project are many! Come and join our team!
