1999-2000 FACULTY CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (FCDP)
The Call for Proposals for the 1999-2000 Faculty Career Development Program
announced in the Campus Notice dated November 20, 1998 is amended. I am
pleased to announce that the program, heretofore limited to Assistant
Professors in the Ladder-Rank and In Residence series, is now expanded to
include Assistant Professors of Clinical X. For the benefit of these newly
eligible junior faculty, the Call for Proposals is repeated below and
reflects this change in eligibility.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS -- AMENDED
1999-2000 FACULTY CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (FCDP) FOR ASSISTANT
PROFESSORS IN THE LADDER-RANK, IN RESIDENCE, AND CLINICAL X SERIES
PURPOSE:
To support junior faculty efforts in research or creative activities in
order to enhance progress towards the Associate Professor level.
ELIGIBILITY:
FCDP is open to all Assistant Professors in the Ladder-Rank, In Residence,
and Clinical X series. An awardee must be in junior status during the
award period of 1999-2000.
DESCRIPTION:
Approximately $100,000 has historically been provided by UC Office of the
President for this program which is administered at UCSD by the Office of
Academic Affirmative Action. Typically, proposals request salary for one
quarter of released time ($13,000-$18,000 depending on salary level) in
order to concentrate efforts on research or other creative activity.
Other awards in the past have also included support for summer research,
research supplies/equipment, salary for a research assistant, and travel
expenses related to a research project.
SELECTION CRITERIA:
Applicants should be approaching consideration for advancement to the
Associate Professor level and regarded as highly promising and deserving
of this opportunity to enhance their record of research, scholarship, and
creative activities. In addition, 1999-2000 program awards will
particularly focus on those who can clearly demonstrate that extraordinary
commitment(s) in other areas has reduced the amount of time available for
the research and creative activity required for successful advancement.
These other areas might include, for example, student advising, teaching,
clinical commitment, curriculum development, supervision of independent
study students, committee service, and outreach activities including efforts
to enhance the diversity of the campus. Preference will be given to those
who have not previously received an award.

The Call for Proposals, the Applicant Summary Sheet, and the Chairís
Evaluation Form are available on the web at

Action Committee, and recommendations will be submitted to Marsha A.
Chandler, Senior Vice Chancellor, in March 1999. Applicants will be notified of the

30, 2000.
