Partial funding to hire research professionals (lab managers, technicians, postdocs etc.) working on applied programs at New Brunswick institutions.

Our Research Professionals Initiative (RPI) provides applied researchers some of the funding they need to hire research professionals. Funding is provided to a maximum of $90,000 per position created, primarily for salary and benefits. The funding is evenly spread over three years ($30,000 per year). Remaining funding can include direct contributions to salary and benefits by the college or university, grants, in-kind contributions, and additional expenses related to the research professional covered by other funding sources. The amount requested in the RPI proposal must be at least evenly matched. For example, if $90,000 is requested then $90,000 in matching funds must be provided.
