Early Career Research Administration Fellowships

Did you know that research administration is a broad career field with diverse employment opportunities?

Research administrators facilitate the link between research activities and research outcomes while promoting best practices in administration and compliance. A need for workforce development in the explosive career landscape of academic research administration has emerged, but students have limited opportunities to actively prepare for these careers.

The Office for Research & Economic Development is offering one-year fellowships in multiple departments to train and prepare outstanding graduate and undergraduate students for this career field.

The fellowship program is designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students with the experience and training necessary to explore and potentially begin a career in research administration. The program selects highly qualified and committed participants to engage directly in training that supports the research infrastructure at The University of Alabama.

Selected fellows will be immersed in ORED in one of six fellowship areas and receive training in a team environment and direct mentorship from leaders in the field of research administration.
