Reviews & endorsements
'After reading Get Funded, I was tempted to make my review extremely short: ‘Buy this book.’ But, after some thought, I realized I should qualify that recommendation. If you are a graduate student thinking about moving into a faculty research position, you should buy this book and read it cover to cover. If you are a new faculty member looking for funding, you should buy this book and read it cover to cover. If you are a university administrator hiring a new faculty member, you should buy this book and give it to whomever you hire because you want that person to be successful. Teaching students about research funding is now more critical to our microwave field than ever before, as most funding and hiring opportunities are in software or digital design. … I am seriously considering buying Bob a beer as thanks for writing something so useful.' Alfy Riddle, IEEE Microwave Magazine
