RSCA/Research Administration Training Four-Part Series for Principal Investigators 

If you have received a grant as the Principal Investigator (PI), or plan to, there are a lot of things to know to be able to design, fund, and manage your personal RSCA enterprise within the context of SJSU. This workshop is a four-part series taught by Research Development (RD), Research Compliance (RC) and the SJSURF Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP). The series will walk you through how to (1) plan your lab or RSCA space and involve, mentor and hire students, (2) be able to understand and help SJSU staff to negotiate contracts on your behalf, (3) understand all the compliance and ethical issues you need to navigate, and (4) manage your grant post award to be compliant with all needed regulations. Attend all four and get a “certificate of completion” that comes with $500 into your SJSURF RSCA account.
