Congratulations to Mrs. Emily Njus who has accepted a promotion to Manager, Pre-Award Research Administration, effective August 1, 2018.
Emily’s connection to UA began when she was a child and would come to UA with her late father, Dr. Glen Njus, Biomedical Engineering. She went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Biology. Her work as a student assistant lead to her position as Research Vivarium Supervisor, and then to Senior Grants Coordinator in the Office of Research Administration. She left UA for Summa Health, where she spent over two years gaining valuable grants administration experience from a non-higher education perspective. As Manager of Pre-Award Administration, Emily hopes to utilize her Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and her other knowledge and skills to help the ORA better serve UA’s researchers.
