The Foundation will award a $100 million grant to a single proposal designed to help solve a critical problem affecting people, places, or the planet.<br /><br />Due to the highly competitive nature of this call UIC will submit only one institutional application. <br /><br />100&Change is open to any field of endeavor. Applicants must identify both the problem they are trying to solve, as well as their proposed solution. Competitive proposals will be meaningful, verifiable, durable, and feasible. The only limit is your track record, creativity, and imagination. Each valid proposal will be reviewed by expert judges from a variety of fields, and evaluated according to a strict set of criteria designed to favor proposals that maximize measurable impact in their chosen areas. <br /><br />Internal Selection Process and Next Steps<br /><br />Interested UIC PIs must submit an internal letter of intent (LOI) by July 8. The Vice Chancellor for Research, in consultation with the Provost and Chancellor, will assess the LOIs to determine which idea(s) are the most compelling, synergistic, and representative of cross-campus strengths. These will be used to coalesce a working group around a single theme which can be developed over the summer. <br /><br />The selected UIC team will be tasked with completing a substantive online application, detailing the problem, solution, and budget, along with posting a video pitch by early October. Semi-finalists will be announced by the Foundation in December and a final decision made later in 2017. <br /><br />For more information about this program and detailed instructions about the internal submission process, please go to http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/mf100change. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br />Tony Halford<br />Director, Office of Research Services <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:01:23 -0500 Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:01:23 -0500 [INFO] Visiting Research Specialist - Department of Medicine, Division of Academic Internal Medicine and Geriatrics The Division of Academic Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, Department of Medicine, at the University of Illinois at Chicago is recruiting for a general Research Specialist to work with multiple investigators.

This tragedy has been on our minds, and we suspect the same is true for many of you. The attack was aimed at the Orlando LGBTQ community; most of the victims were Latino, and we mourn for them and their families and friends. This letter is in support of that community and all of the members of our LGBTQ community at UIC. We stand with you during this difficult time. Your presence makes our community stronger.<br /><br />While we strive for our educational community to be one where ideas and perspectives are vigorously researched and openly discussed, hateful speech and violence have no place on our campus. This is especially important given the long history of discrimination and violence that LGBTQ communities, particularly queer and trans communities of color, have endured and continue to endure on a regular basis. This year alone more than 200 anti-LGBT bills have been introduced in 34 states. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where all campus members feel safe to live, work, research, teach, and study regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion, ability status, or socioeconomic class. What happened in Orlando strengthens the importance of that commitment. We are one of the nation's most diverse campuses; we are proud of that and better for it.<br /><br />Traumatic experiences such as this can leave each of us greatly impacted, whether we are aware of it or not. During this challenging time, we want to remind everyone of some important resources available for support on our campus. The Counseling Center (http://counseling.uic.edu) is staffed with professionals who are available to talk, and their website has listed a number of links to important resources. Additionally, our Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (http://diversity.uic.edu/who-we-are/centers-for-cultural-understanding-and-social-change/) are dedicated to providing safe spaces for students to gather and engage in dialogue together. We encourage all campus members to seek out these resources for support and guidance, to reach out to one other, especially your LGBTQ friends and family, and offer your support. <br /><br />This week has been filled with many dark hours. In such times, we find solace in being surrounded by people who are committed to ending hatred, bigotry, discrimination, and violence. We find hope in community engagement, with one another on our campus and throughout Chicago. We find hope in the work we do, as an urban educational institution, to eliminate disparities in health, education, and economic opportunity. We find hope in working at a place where we do not just speak of a commitment to ending hatred, discrimination, and violence—we live that commitment. We find hope, strength, compassion, and love in each of you. Thank you for your commitment and your action.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br />The Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of LGBTQ People and Allies <br /><br />With the support from the Office of Diversity, Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Asian Americans, Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Blacks, Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Latinos, Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities, Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women, African American Cultural Center, Asian American Resource and Cultural Center, Campus Advocacy Network, Disability Resource Center, Gender and Sexuality Center, Latino Cultural Center, Women’s Leadership and Resource Center, and Office for Access and Equity. massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:39:54 -0500 Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:39:54 -0500 [INFO] Medical Social Associate Positions open with Jane Adams College of Social Work Job Summary:<br /><br />The Jane Adams College of Social Work is seeking five (5) Medical Social Associates (Managed Care Case Coordinator).

To access the myResearch Portal, please go to: https://myresearch.uillinois.edu/piPortal. <br /><br />As many of you have seen at the BAT conference and ORS Chat Sessions, this release of the myResearch Portal features a completely new design and layout, an enhanced search function, and improved reporting/data export tools. This release is an important step toward an integrated electronic research administration system. The myResearch Portal should address most reporting needs. As we continue to evolve the Portal, we encourage your feedback on the redesigned interface and additional data needs. In addition, there will be reports available in EDDIE after Monday, June 20, 2016. <br /><br />If you currently have access to the myResearch Portal and EDDIE, your access will remain. If you do not have access, please have your USC submit a request through the AITS Security Application (https://www.aits.uillinois.edu/access/find_my_usc/) If you are a Business Manager, your USC should request the Business Manager profile under the myResearch tab.<br /><br />Behind the scenes, UIeRA will be replaced by the Kuali Coeus (KC) grants management system in our central research office – all data in UIeRA will be migrated to KC prior to launch of the enhanced Portal. With every new system, changes to processes are inevitable. In order to collect information that meets the needs of the KC system, ORS has developed several new forms that are available on the ORS website at http://research.uic.edu/sponsored-programs/forms-contract-templates. ORS will begin accepting these new forms immediately. In order to help make the transition easier, we will continue to accept old versions of the forms (i.e. PAF) until Monday, July 18, 2016.<br /><br />Please be aware that awards, contracts, and grants for funding cannot be assigned to a Contract Negotiator until the PAF has been approved by ORS. If you submit your award, contract or grant simultaneously with the PAF, please expect delays in assignment. PAF’s must be submitted to ORS prior to proposal submissions or requests for funding.<br /><br />A summary of the new ORS forms is below:<br /><br />• PAF<br />o Replaces old PAF with changes to accommodate changes from UIeRA (InfoEd) to the KC grants management system<br />o For all new submissions requesting new funds<br /><br />• Non-Competing Continuation Progress Report<br />o New Form <br />o Used when the sponsor requires a progress report to be submitted by the institution on behalf of the PI (ORS) and no new funds are requested (e.g. RPPR)<br /><br />• No Money LOI/White Paper<br />o New Form<br />o Used when the sponsor requires an institutional endorsement on a white paper or Letter of Intent (LOI) and no budget is required at this stage<br /><br />• Change in F&A Allocation<br />o New Form<br />o Used when the ICR/F&A split allocation has changed since original/previous splits<br /><br />• Intake Form for Incoming Material Transfer Agreement<br />o New Form<br />o Replaces the need to complete PAF, streamlines and simplifies submission process to ORS. This form also incorporates the IP Disclosure form<br />o Used when receiving material from another institution<br /><br />• Intake Form for Outgoing Material Transfer Agreement<br />o New Form<br />o Replaces the need to complete PAF, streamlines and simplifies submission process to ORS. This form also incorporates the IP Disclosure form<br />o Used when sending material to another institution<br /><br />• Intake Form for Data Use Agreement<br />o New Form<br />o Replaces the need to complete PAF, streamlines and simplifies submission process to ORS. This form also incorporates the IP Disclosure form.<br />o Used when sharing data between institutions<br /><br />• Intake Form for Confidentiality Agreement<br />o New Form<br />o Replaces the need to complete PAF, streamlines and simplifies submission process to ORS. This form also incorporates the IP Disclosure form<br />o Used when sharing proprietary or confidential information between institutions<br /><br />• Intake Form for No Money (Contracts)<br />o New Form<br />o Replaces the need to complete PAF, streamlines and simplifies submission process to ORS<br />o This form also incorporates the IP Disclosure form<br />o This is for any other non-money agreement (e.g. MOU, No Money Collaborations)<br /><br />If you have any questions about the forms please email ORS@uic.edu. <br /><br />In addition to the above changes, ORS will be rolling out a new document delivery system, ORSWeb, which many of you have seen at the BAT conference and at ORS Chat Sessions. This system is currently being beta tested by users across campus and access to the system will be given on a rolling basis starting Tuesday, July 5, 2016. Communications will be sent to each college individually regarding access and training will be available as needed. This system will allow users to upload all completed and signed forms to ORSWeb so there will no longer be a need to walk over to ORS to deliver documents.<br /><br />If you would like a member of the START myResearch team to present to your unit or department on the enhanced version of the Portal or on reports available in EDDIE or if you have feedback on the system please contact Youngwook Song ywsong@uillinois.edu. <br /><br />For more information about START myResearch, please visit the project website at http://web.uillinois.edu/start_myresearch/.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Tony Halford<br />Director, Office of Research Services <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Wed, 15 Jun 2016 17:43:34 -0500 Wed, 15 Jun 2016 17:43:34 -0500 [INFO] Paid Research Study Dr. K.
