Slide 13

Factor 3 – Guidelines and Originality Available Literature - applies to explore area Originality Required – to acquire expected results (End of the Position Description; Limited to 3 pages; all impartial) Demonstrated Originality – What is it about you that empowered the achievements. Use illustrations of achievements yet don’t basically recount them.

Slide 14

Factor 4 - Qualifications and Contributions: Entire Career Demonstrated Accomplishments What was expert? What was your part? Effect (So What? Who Cares?) Stature and Recognition (Awards, Invitations (even those you couldn\'t acknowledge), Professional Society Activities)

Slide 15

Factor IV - Qualifications and Contributions: Entire Career Advisory and Consultant Activities Other (Education, Experience, Other Significant Information) Publications Peer explored diary articles and licenses Non Peer evaluated (procedures, and so forth.) Abstracts not recorded

Slide 16

Demonstrated Accomplishments GS 11 and 12 – Allowed 5 achievement explanations GS 13 or more – Allowed 8 Limited to a half page Each achievement must be archived with two shows, normally senior composed, associate assessed original copies. Can be letters from partners (through the AD) IDR rundown ought to contain no less than one individual learned about every achievement

Slide 17

Demonstrated Accomplishments What was expert? Made, Discovered, Solved an issue, and so on. What part did you play? Imagined, Led, Wrote Manuscripts, Grant Proposals, and so forth. What is the effect (so what and who cares)? Who has embraced, How has it affected science, What acknowledgment was gotten (recompenses, stipends supported, and so forth.)

Slide 18

Types of Accomplishments Research Special Assignments or Projects Technology Transfer Systems Research and Integration Leadership (RL and Scientific)

Slide 19

Accomplishment Statement Examples Accomplishment: Adjuvants for utilization with microbial and compound pesticides must guarantee assurance from daylight and precipitation and be valuable in moderately little sums. Wheat gluten was synthetically adjusted to make an adjuvant that shields Bacillus thuringiensis from daylight and washoff by precipitation when added to a splash tank at 1% solids. The adjuvant additionally assists a with corning rootworm insecticidal detailing called SLAM hold fast to corn plants and the adjuvant, when joined with encouraging stimulants, can be utilized to stick other corn rootworm pesticides to plants in this way empowering lessening of dynamic fixing.

Slide 20

Accomplishment Statement Examples Role: Dr. X drove the group and co-considered, co-created and co-licensed the innovation. He administered composition the original copies and patent applications.

Slide 21

Accomplishment Statement Examples Impact: This innovation made another alternative for administrators accused of controlling corn rootworm grown-ups on corn. Hammer is the main item with decreased rates of dynamic fixing at present available. Hammer does not hold fast well to plants and must be reapplied. By blending the gluten adjuvant with SLAM, the item stays on the plants longer and can oppose wash off. The Area-Wide Corn Rootworm Adult Management Project supported Dr. X’s work for ca. $100,000 from 1997-2000. Microflo, the organization that creates SLAM, authorized the utilization of gluten and reformulated 30,000 pounds for utilization in the late spring of 2000. Furthermore, Trã©cã© Corporation authorized the utilization of gluten to join it with a strong encouraging stimulant as an adjuvant that can be utilized with decreased rates of different pesticides enlisted for utilization against corn rootworm grown-ups. The item was propelled in Summer 2000. (Display 3a, #24; Exhibit 3b, #25, and #71, #41)

Slide 22

Accomplishment Statement Examples Accomplishment/Role: Dr. Y proposed that direct mechanical vaccination of the vascular tissues in seeds will sidestep the requirement for vectors to transmit maize infections. This rich, whimsical, and straightforward methodology brought about a very proficient strategy for mechanical transmission of (6 infections recorded) into maize.

Slide 23

Accomplishment Statement Examples Impact: Among different advantages, this examination gave an one of a kind answer for study infections without the perplexing impact of vectors, wiped out or lessened the serious work necessities of creepy crawly raising, assisted tests on infectivity of infection arrangements, if a way to think about the component of imperviousness to systemic infection development and to study infection resistance freely from vector resistance, and encouraged studies that control recombinant viral clones (Exhibit 8a, #85, Exhibit 8b #92, and #87)

Slide 24

Panel Operations Comprised of 5 researchers GS 13 or more speaking to two companion bunches; a staff agent, and a board seat. Board individuals are unknown. One board part (inside of your associate gathering) is relegated to do a top to bottom audit of your case (board part may have extra cases to do the top to bottom survey) Reads original copies Calls top to bottom contacts and others (at least 5 contacts, including administrator, are obliged) Prepares draft board report

Slide 25

Panel Operations All individuals score every case before meeting Panel meets eye to eye to talk about legitimate evaluation as indicated by the RGEG Consensus methodology Panels will conceal to 12 cases in a day and a half; shockingly most lower reviewed cases require the most measure of time so it is vital the case is elegantly composed.
