Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
We hope that all of you had a great summer and that you continue to stay safe this fall semester. Below are announcements that may apply to you:
TUC Staffing Changes
It is with sadness that I inform you that after almost 3 years with TUC, Dakota Hughes has decided to accept a new position at CSU Dominguez Hills. His last day with TUC will be on September 17.
During his time with TUC, he has served as a Post-Award liaison for several colleges and departments, including Strength United, BUILD grant, College of Humanities, and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Dakota is known to his colleagues as someone who is dedicated to his work and his son, organized and detailed, knowledgeable with compliance, and has a passion for learning. He will be deeply missed by his colleagues and we are happy for his new opportunity. Please reach out to Dakota to congratulate him and wish him luck on his new journey.
With this change, we are updating our Post-Award liaison assignments (see below). This will be effective September 20, 2021. Philia Militante will be joining the Post-Award liaison team while we recruit and train for an Analyst Associate.
The recruitment for the Analyst Associate has started. If you know anyone who is interested, maybe a (former) student of yours who has a knack for analyzing problems and loves numbers, please encourage them to apply. The position is currently posted in the CSUN website. Our team would love to meet them.
