e)    Financial Support for Research

i)     Internal

(1)   Research Support: Because research lies at the heart of the Stem School's mission, generous support is provided to every faculty member who has exhibited significant research productivity in the recent past, and more limited support to faculty members who are embarking on new research efforts.

(2)   Honorifics

(a)   Research Professor and Faculty Fellow: These titles recognize and reward the research achievements of tenured faculty members.  The two titles are functionally equivalent.


(b)   Endowed Chair: This title, supported by donations endowing a chair, is the top honor available to recognize and reward the achievements of tenured faculty members. 

(3)   STARS (Stern Teaching and Research Supplement): Stern provides funds to each department, which in turn allocates some of these funds to faculty members for research and teaching expenses.  See STARS Handbook and STARS FAQ for details.

ii)   External

(1)   Description: When funding is provided for a particular project or goal, it is considered a grant, and is managed by Karyn Jeannopoulos, OFA’s Associate Director for Funded Faculty Research (kjeannop@stern.nyu.edu).  Stern provides incentives for faculty to obtain grants with overhead funding through Stern.  If funding is given in support of a faculty member but with no stated purpose, it is considered a gift and is managed by Stern’s Development Department.

(2)   Process: To apply for a grant, contact Karyn at the address above.  She will help find funding, prepare a budget and take care of all the administrative requirements; the faculty member only writes the research proposal.

(3)   Timing: Ongoing.

2)        Leading Journals:
