The deadline for submitting nominations for the John & Rebecca Moores Professorship is February 6, 2015.
The Moores Professor’s Program was established to honor full-time tenured faculty who have achieved the rank of full professor at the University of Houston and who have made outstanding contributions in
- research, scholarship, and/or creative activities;
- teaching or mentoring at the undergraduate and/or graduate level;
- service on a local, national, or international level.
Each Moores Professor will receive an annual stipend of discretionary funds. The position will be awarded for a period of five years with the possibility of renewal. It is anticipated that two Professors will be selected during Spring 2015, with an annual stipend of $10,000. Faculty members at the University of Houston may hold only one distinguished or named chair or professorship.
I encourage you to learn more about the specific award information and criteria for the John & Rebecca Moores Professors online and apply by the February 6, 2015 deadline.
I look forward to receiving your nominations.
