ASU Funding Guidelines
ASU Funding Information distributes specific funding opportunity announcements to deans, department chairs, and individual faculty, as appropriate. Personnel knowledgeable about current grant and contract opportunities regularly hold workshops to assist faculty and staff in locating funding for their scholarly activities. Funding Information also provides liaison with Community of Science (COS) and Grants Resource Center (GRC) for the University community.

ASU Office of Research and Special Projects Administration (ORSPA)
ASU Office of Research and Special Projects Administration (ORSPA) subscribes to many national databases and is constantly searching for career opportunities for junior faculty, new investigators, and other scholars who are at an early stage in their careers.

Responsible Conduct in Research
Arizona State University’s commitment to ethics training for researchers is demonstrated in part by the RCR training plans implemented in 2010. Postdoctoral researchers are required to complete the online RCR module, complete the online quiz within 60 days, and attend a RCR workshop within their first year of appointment.

Individual Development Plan (IDP)
An Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a valuable planning document that gives students and scholars an opportunity to effectively set goals and identify career paths for the future. A template for an IDP is located here:  myIDP
