Just got word that our NSF-ADVANCE grant that we’d been waiting on was finally funded. W00T!!! Start date of October 1. It’s not listed on the NSF website yet, but I’ll post the link when it is.
It’s $3.9M. The president of the university is the PI, and I’m one of 3 co-PIs. It will fund my research assistants and my major research for 5 years. Not bad for a newbie assistant professor.
I think I’m going to take the evening off.
