Sponsored Research

Under the supervision of the Business Manager and a member of the Business Center, the Assistant Grants Manager’s primary responsibilities are pre- and post-award activities related to MAE home based faculty with research grants both internal and external to the University.  Assistant Grants Managers are responsible for maintaining a comprehensive knowledge of the faculty member’s research portfolio and providing thoughtful and effective guidance to principal investigators on how best to utilize their research resources for both sponsored and discretionary research funds.  The assistant grants manager serves as a resource for faculty, students, researchers and staff on policy and procedural inquiries related to grants management and financial activities of the University.  The assistant grants manager assists the business manager with the implementation of departmental processes and changes to workflow, policy or procedures as required. For more details on submitting proposals, please see the Doing Research and MAE page found here.

Buying & Paying

All orders should be routed to the Purchasing Department - purchasing_mae@princeton.edu. If your vendor is in the internal marketplace, you cannot purchase from this vendor on your own personal credit card/T & E or Department Purchasing Card as there are University negoiated prices already established. You can view available and suggested vendors in the PRIME portal.  Reference materials for buying & paying for goods and services can be found in the Information and Training button on the PRIME portal. 

Travel & Expense - CONCUR

Travel and expense reimbursements are submitted through Concur and un-related expenses may be included on a single monthly expense report.

  • In the header, include your PI last name & Description of Expenses.
  • The business purpose MUST be completed for each and every expense and must include Who/What/When/Where and Why - EXAMPLE: Smith/Meal/Talk @ APS Mtg/SanDiego/Aug 2018.
  • NO paper reimbursements will be accepted.
  • If you hold a University netid you have been automatically granted access to Concur. 

Concur can be accessed from the PRIME portal or www.princeton.edu/concur or travel.princeton.edu. Reference materials for travel and expense can be found in the Information and Training button on the PRIME portal, and a new one-page guide will be available soon.
