InfoED Profile

InfoEd Profile Setup (pdf) — The InfoEd PROFILE module allows you to enter personal data which will be integrated into various other InfoEd modules. Specific profile information coupled with keywords and filtering criteria that reflect your research, instruction, and/or public service interests, allows you to receive e-mail alerts of new funding opportunities which match your criteria on a daily basis via InfoEd SMARTS.

Your profile also allows faculty at Clemson University and other institutions worldwide to access your research interests for collaborative assessment, making your information available to thousands of researchers worldwide. Additionally, your one-time data entry can auto-populate multiple personal, customizable curriculum vita (CV). When available, your personal data will auto-populate electronic proposal submissions through the InfoEd Proposal Development module.
