ADVANCE-Nebraska selects candidates from STEM departments to be Recruitment Ambassadors. Recruitment Ambassadors will receive $2,000 per department for a Recruitment Ambassador (faculty member) to attend one or more national conferences (depending on how you'd like to use the funds) to seek high quality doctoral candidates, post-docs, or appropriate level faculty to apply to UNL. We suggest that departments send representatives who will recruit for openings this academic year and for potential openings beyond.
Ambassadors must be appointed by department head/chair. Recruitment Ambassadors will meet on August, 28, 2009 with ADVANCE-Nebraska co-PIs to develop effective strategies for recruitment. They will be expected to write a report on their activities during the year for our annual reporting requirements for NSF.
