UF Research Foundation Professorship

University of Florida Research Foundation Professorships are awarded to tenured faculty members who have a distinguished current record of research. The purpose of these awards is to recognize recent contributions and to provide incentives for continued excellence in research.

The primary selection criteria will include a) the professor’s performance in the past five years and b) evidence of a strong research agenda that is likely to lead to continuing distinction in the professor’s field.

UFRF Professorships are open to tenured faculty, subject to certain eligibility requirements. Funds in the University of Florida Research Foundation are earned from royalties and fees on intellectual property, retained indirect costs from certain corporate contracts and grants, and investment income. These awards involve no state funds.
