Jim Greer
Chair Professor in Engineering Physics
Year after year I see how the university provides a high degree of support for everyone within their three campuses. Notably, UNNC also offers excellent research and teaching seed funding, Ph.D. scholarships, conference grants, and other incentives that make a big difference, enabling academic staff to ‘ramp up’ quickly after their appointment.
