Kingsbury named director of Sponsored Programs at The U
Kingsbury brings to USD several years of experience managing research programs at IARPA, a major federal research funding organization, and proposal development for Northrop Grumman/TASC, one of the country’s largest defense contractors. Kingsbury’s graduate study in linguistics and applied research in computational linguistics will be helpful models to foster interdisciplinary work across the USD campus.
Director of Sponsored Programs is a new position at USD, created as part of the university’s commitment to the National Science Foundation’s EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement grant awarded to South Dakota earlier this fall. Kingsbury will work with faculty, students and administration to enhance competitive research and other sponsored activities, and will complement the technology transfer efforts of Brian Mathers, USD’s director of research development.
“Paul brings a wealth of experience with large federal projects, yet also has a good grasp of interdisciplinary research involving humanities,” said Laura Jenski, vice president for research at USD. “He and Brian [Mathers] create a cradle-to-grave team – proposal development through research commercialization.”
Kingsbury is located on the Vermillion campus, and he can be reached in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at (605) 677-7224. A photo of Paul is available at www.usd.edu/urelations/images/Paul_Kingsbury.jpg.
