The Research Development Team was created to be a comprehensive service center for any researcher interested in submitting large, collaborative proposals.
Our team can manage the entire pre-award process, including budget and budget justification development, coordination of collaborators across campus, coordination of subawardees, project management, drafting management plans, grant editing and writing, etc.
No, we will work with all sponsor types.
A proposed budget should be at least $5 million total costs (direct and indirect) for the duration of the project.
Anyone eligible to serve as a Principal Investigator at JHU can work with us.
There is no cost to either you or your department for using RDT services.
Yes. At this time, RDT will not retain any recovered Indirect Costs for our services.
The COEUS record is developed under RDT’s cost center for tracking but changed to the PI’s cost center before award. We can provide access for department staff to view proposals in ASSIST, Workspace, FastLane, and/or COEUS.
Yes, RDT has designated representatives in JHURA, BARA and ORA.
Not at all. It is completely up to the PI. Your RDT grants manager will be in contact with the department as much or as little as needed. We are here to help support departments if they are unable to dedicate the time and effort it takes to submit a large, collaborative funding application.
Please notify us at least eight weeks in advance of your proposal’s due date.
At this time, RDT does not manage the submission of training grants. However, we can connect you with University resources to assist with collection of the university-wide data required for some training grant tables.
You can contact RDT and we will generate a list of researchers with similar research interests, or you can browse any of the following databases:
-At Johns Hopkins University, you can search by division through the Academics portal to find specific departments to contact.
-The Welch Medical Library offers access to databases like PubMed and Scopus, which you can search by keyword to find relevant publications.
–NIH Reporter allows you to search by keywords to find projects led by researchers from across the country. You can search for projects in your field of interest and then initiate contact with the PI to discuss potential collaboration.
A few ways to find announcements that encourage collaboration are:
-Search the word: “collab” in the search box on NIH’s Funding page. Various opportunities will populate that you can filter through.
-Browse the National Organization for Research Development Professionals’ (NORDP) Comprehensive List of Collaborative Funding Mechanisms. This resource was created, and is maintained, by NORDP members.
Whether you reach out in-person, by email, or via a phone call, you should start by expressing how it would be beneficial for both of you to collaborate. You should also show enthusiasm on how innovative the idea is and how it would push your field forward. If they agree, having possible funding opportunities readily available to share can move the conversation to something actionable.

The Office of Foundation Relations, part of JHU’s Development and Alumni Relations organization, centrally manages relationships between the Johns Hopkins University and philanthropic foundations. They monitor programs and priorities of major national foundations and key Baltimore-area foundations to identify changes in direction and new initiatives of interest to Johns Hopkins. Their purpose is to maximize funding from foundations to advance JHU’s groundbreaking research, teaching, and outreach activities by ensuring that each University contact with a foundation is strategic and optimized. Ultimately, their goal is to build, enhance, and sustain relationships with a broad range of local, national, and international foundations to promote shared goals and objectives.
The Office of Foundation Relations works closely with the Office of the Vice Provost for Research as they prepare announcements of limited submission competitions, providing editorial and strategic advice to faculty on their submissions, and/or preparing institutional letters of endorsement.

You can find a list of open competitions, including deadlines and contact information, on our limited submission website here.
We tailor preproposal templates to the goals and review criteria of each opportunity. You should read the entire RFP, and answer template questions based on the sponsor’s criteria. Avoid using abbreviations, acronyms, and technical jargon, but do write at the level of a highly educated lay person. It is also important that the project description explain the critical need for your research. Consider the following: What is the problem? What has been done so far? What is the gap that remains? How will you address that gap?
The VPR makes every effort to ensure that successful internal applicants have sufficient time to prepare a full proposal upon being notified of their selection. Typically, the VPR strives to provide interested parties one month from the date of notification to submit their preproposals. The VPR then aims to notify applicants (both successful and unsuccessful) within one week of the internal deadline. These internal deadlines are set to approximately two months before the full proposal is due to the sponsor. In some instances, the above timeframes may be shortened due to circumstances such as when the VPR becomes aware of a limited submission opportunity, or when a given sponsor chooses to publicize its RFP.
All team members should have a well-defined role in the project and appropriate expertise. Build meaningful partnerships with potential collaborators prior to proposal submissions whenever possible.
The BDPs will receive tenure in each of their home schools, where tenure is available. If a school or division does not award tenure, the BDP will be appointed at a level commensurate with a tenured faculty rank in that unit.
Tenure reviews will be conducted by each school according to its usual procedures, supplemented by the provost’s Guidelines for BDP Appointments, and subject to coordination by the provost’s office to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort (for example, to solicit a single set of external letters to inform the tenure review in each participating school).
Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships will be allocated by the president and provost. In the initial phase of the BDP program, roughly ten new professorships will be established each year — up to a total of fifty — from in AY 2013-14 through AY 2017-18. Subsequently, BDP positions will be reallocated as they become vacant.
During the initial five-year allocation phase, the provost will solicit proposals to be considered twice yearly, with deadlines of November 1 and April 1. If the deadline falls on a weekend, the proposals will be due the following Monday. Proposals may be either for targeted searches in defined areas or for specific individuals. In all cases, the proposal should advance a strong case for the importance and impact of the fields spanned by the proposed appointment and the position’s anticipated contribution to the cross-disciplinary scholarship. For additional information see the BDP Proposal Guidelines.
Once you have been notified that you have been nominated to move forward on an award, you should work with your department administrator and JHURA representative to ensure your proposal submission meets the University and sponsor guidelines. A JHURA representative will also assist with the submission of your application to the sponsor. For more information, please click here.
Late submissions to the internal deadline are handled on a case-by-case basis, and even then are only considered if the number of submissions received is less than the number allowed. The internal competition officially starts upon receipt of preproposals, and we enforce the deadlines in the interest of fairness, consistency, and transparency. Following a competition where we receive fewer responses than the number of submissions allowed, the remaining submissions are filled on a “first to notify us” basis.
No. Please confirm the interest of all participants mentioned by name in a preproposal before submitting. If you are unable to get in touch with someone, you can note that you will pull in certain expertise from a person yet to be identified (e.g. – Chemical engineer with expertise in polymers – TBD).
Formerly the Homewood Career Center, The Life Design Lab is an important resource for all Krieger and Whiting School undergraduates – beginning in your freshman year. Schedule an appointment with a career coach or meet with them during drop-in hours.
Team Leaders: Nicholas Durr (Engineering), Alan Ravitz (Applied Physics Laboratory), Youseph Yazdi (Engineering)
Team Leaders: Kate Grabowski (Medicine), David Peters (Public Health), Dan Polsky (Business/Public Health)

Call them at 410-516-8278 to schedule an appointment or to talk to someone or check out the website for drop-in hours and other resources.
If you are working late on a project anywhere on campus and feel insecure leaving or if you are ill and need help, take advantage of the Campus Security escort program. The office will send security staff to walk or drive you on or around campus or to the hospital if needed. Call 410-516-4600 to request an escort.
Emergency Procedures – Homewood campus: Report all emergencies as soon as possible to JHU Security at 410-516-7777. Click HERE for more information.
A: If employees can work successfully remotely, then their salary can continue to be paid on federally funded sponsored awards. For staff who normally punch in/punch out or are subject to direct supervision, the institution might consider deploying alternative forms of work verification. Alternate work verification is at the discretion of JHU managers. If the employee is working in a foreign location, check with your research administration office as sponsors vary for allowability on this.
A) Standard PPE. [New, 6/1/20]
If PPE was required to be purchased for a sponsored project as a part of standard best lab practice prior to COVID-19, it can continue to be direct charged to a grant during or after COVID-19 as well.
B) Additional PPE
PPE can be charged to sponsored awards if needed to conform with research reopening requirements and such costs are being allocated to all awards benefiting from the activity (e.g., all sponsored projects and all non-sponsored activities with similar needs are required to cover the cost of such items.) For example, if an experiment requires two individuals to stand within 6 feet of each other, any PPE needed to conduct that experiment would be an appropriate charge to the sponsored project during the re-opening phase even if no PPE for that experiment was considered necessary prior to COVID-19. Considerations for allocating these costs should include, the projects the salary/effort of the individuals is being charged to, or an allocation methodology.
C) Additional PPE – Beyond standard equipment but not required to re-open lab
Items not required for re-opening, (e.g. PPE acquired for the personal preference of the individuals involved) cannot be purchased on sponsored funds.
A: OMB guidance M-20-17 permits charging of salaries to active awards when persons cannot work at all provided it is consistent with JHU’s policy of paying salaries from all funding sources. JHU has resumed on-campus research activities starting June 15, 2020. Effective on June 16, 2020, personnel who are not able either to work remotely or on campus may not have their salary charged to sponsored awards. Personnel who are not able to work at all should also be coding their E210 records (if applicable) according to HR guidelines. While OMB subsequently issued guidance that would permit grant agencies to permit grantees to continue to charge personnel to the grant who are not working under September 2020 upon certain additional conditions, JHU has changed its pay policy and will not be relying on that later OMB guidance.
A: The University has to negotiate its fringe benefit rate on an annual basis with the federal government. Until we have negotiated a new fringe benefit rate agreement, please continue to use the current applicable fringe benefit rates in our existing agreement for your proposal submission. In situations where the finalized rate is lower than the budget proposed rate, generally, these excess funds are available for re-budgeting. However, it depends on each grantor’s policy. Please consult specific agency guidelines /terms and conditions of the agreement before proceeding.
A: NIH has indicated that if project-purchased PPE (or other lab supplies) were donated during the pandemic for clinical or first responder use, then the award may re-purchase PPE and charge those costs to the grant. Administrative supplements may be available if rebudgeting is inadequate to replace the donated PPE. Most other agencies require agency-prior approval to donate PPE; thus, any PPE donated should either be replaced (using non-sponsored fund sources) or the PI should request agency prior/retroactive approval. If approval is received, the replacement PPE can be charged to the award. Alternatively, non-sponsored funds can be used to purchase replacement PPE or supplies.
A: JHU previously informed the community that, in the immediate response to the COVID-19 national emergency, regardless of the funding source, personnel should continue to be paid in accordance with the University Policy Altered/Curtailed Operating Plans and the Closure. As JHU begins a phased resumption of our on-campus activities, this temporary pay policy is ending June 15, 2020, and business units must review the funding sources and pay for personnel who are not able to work.
A: Several federal agencies have issued guidance allowing for flexibility, with justification, when an institution closes. However, JHU research administration staff are fully operational remotely and do not anticipate disruption in proposal review and submission. JHU Research leadership encourages PIs to make every effort to submit proposals before the due date.
Unsure of where to begin or what to research? What you want to research is only limited by your imagination! Think of subjects that pique your curiosity and research any previous work done on them. Try to be as specific as possible while simultaneously keeping your options open. Consider what form of work will be involved while conducting the actual research and decide whether or not it is for you. You want to enjoy what you are doing!
Once you know what you are interested in, you can begin looking around for opportunities. HOUR is developing searchable faculty and student databases to ease the process but meanwhile, you can browse faculty pages of different department websites which are listed below. Compile a list of professors and begin writing them emails. Introduce yourself, demonstrate your interest in their research, and ask for an opportunity to meet with them.
Bring your resume to your meetings with the professors and dress appropriately. Clearly express your personal goals and what you hope to take from the experience. Keep in mind that this professor will potentially mentor you and write your letter of recommendation in the future. Consider your time commitment and resource availability. Choose wisely!
Student employment is more than just campus jobs. They offer the opportunity to explore career options, obtain transferable skills, work with faculty and staff, and help ease financial burdens.
Are you supposed to receive funds through any HOUR program? Follow these steps to assure you receive your funding:
If you represent another Hopkins undergraduate journal and would like it featured here, please email us at HOUR@jhu.edu with more information.

The Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships serve as the cornerstone of an ambitious effort to advance cross-disciplinary work across the University.
The Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships (BDPs) will form a cadre of one hundred world-class faculty members whose excellence in research, teaching, and service is centered on interdisciplinary scholarship. The BDPs bridge the university’s schools and divisions, conduct and stimulate innovative research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, and train a new generation of collaborative scholars. Together they strongly advance the university’s commitment to new directions in scholarship and to fields where Johns Hopkins is especially well poised to assume a position of intellectual leadership.
The BDPs will be appointed in at least two schools or divisions, including academic centers reporting directly to the provost. In exceptional cases, they also may be appointed in two or more diverse departments within a single school. The length of appointment term – to be at least five years at a time – is negotiated by each school or affiliate with renewal as the default expectation upon completion of each term.
The BDPs will hold tenured positions in each unit (where tenure is available) and will teach, conduct research, and perform service in each unit. For administrative purposes, one academic unit will be the lead in each appointment.
Teaching: Where possible, the BDP will teach in each unit, with a load appropriate for a senior faculty member. All BDPs are encouraged to teach undergraduate as well as graduate students. Teaching responsibilities will be negotiated in advance of the appointment.
Service: Each BDP will perform service appropriate for each unit, with effort divided according to the terms of the appointment.
F&A: The F&A generated by each BDP will be allocated where costs are incurred, consistent with federal regulations. The F&A split will be negotiated by the relevant deans or directors.
When a BDP retires or otherwise leaves the position, the professorship reverts to the president and provost to be reallocated and awarded to a new candidate, following the appointment procedures in force at the time.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Depending on the proximity to the deadline, we will either initiate an internal competition or determine if you can be allowed to proceed as “first to notify.” If you fail to notify us, you may waste a great deal of your hard work if someone else already notified us and received the permission to proceed.
Limited Submissions are funding opportunities where the sponsor has placed a limit on the number of responses (or applicants) it will permit from an institution. Upon learning of such an opportunity, the University’s Office of the Vice Provost for Research (VPR) initiates an internal limited submission competition, which requires interested applicants to submit a preproposal. The VPR has sole responsibility for managing the review of each preproposal and the choosing of which applicant(s) are selected to apply to the sponsor directly.
All preproposals are reviewed under the auspices of the VPR. To ensure fairness, the VPR will only speak with applicants to clarify certain aspects of a preproposal that are unclear, or to gain required information that is missing from the application forms. All decisions of the VPR are final.
