Research Training Finder

All investigators funded by an externally sponsored project must complete grants management training (as explained here). A search tool has been developed for USC faculty, PIs, postdocs, students, research staff and lab technicians: This Research Training Finder tool is a comprehensive matrix for training courses that are required and suggested for University research compliance.

Navigating the University 2019

USC’s annual Navigating the University event offers new faculty from all disciplines, appointment types and levels the opportunity to learn about campus-wide resources available at USC. The event is also a great way to meet fellow faculty from across the university.

The two-day retreat has three parts: The Office of the Provost’s New Faculty Onboarding features sessions on professional development, teaching and USC culture. Then following the presentations, there’s an informal meet and greet for new faculty to introduce themselves to each other over refreshments and appetizers.

Finally, the Office of Research’s Research & Resources Management brings together USC faculty and staff to provide advice and first-hand experiences on research strategy, mentoring, financial management and budgeting, clinical research, and diversity in research. Below are the presentations from 2019’s event:
