03-25-15  Grant Proposal Manager Jeralyn Haraldsen

Office of the VP/Research announces a faculty grant support initiative

March 18, 2015

Dr. Richard Galbraith, UVM’s Vice President for Research, is pleased to announce the creation of a new full-time position housed in the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), that will prioritize the support of faculty across campus and in all disciplines in the writing, submission, and oversight of large multi-disciplinary grant proposals.  

Jeralyn Haraldsen, Ph.D. will begin work as the OVPR’s Grant Proposal Manager on April 1, 2015. In addition to larger proposals, and time permitting, Dr. Haraldsen will provide support and training to individual investigators and faculty members new to the grant writing process.  

“The clear and overarching priority of the OVPR at this time is to support UVM faculty as they engage in the creation of knowledge, whether it be research, scholarship, or creative works,” said Galbraith. “We are pleased to have Dr. Haraldsen on our team and believe that she will prove to be an invaluable resource as we foster scholarly activities at UVM.”  

Dr. Haraldsen was trained as a scientist and has broad and extensive experience in scientific ommunication. She has a B.S. in Biotechnology from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and went on to complete Ph.D. training in Molecular Microbiology at Tufts University in 2003, and postdoctoral training in parasitology and cellular microbiology at the University of Vermont in 2007. She was mentored in providing grant proposal support by working with the Office of Proposal Development at Tufts University. She is an active member of the National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP).  

Since 2007, Dr. Haraldsen has assisted principal investigators from diverse disciplines in the preparation and submission of over 100 grant and federal contract proposals to a variety of funding agencies. She provides grantsmanship, writing, and editing support, with a focus on responsiveness to the funding agency’s requirements. In addition, she provides overall project management assistance for large or complex proposal submissions.  

Prior to this position, Jeralyn was a grant specialist in the Division of Hematology / Oncology within the UVM College of Medicine (2013-2015), and served as a freelance scientific grant writing consultant and scientific editor (2008-2013).
