The Robert N. Noyce '49 Visiting Professorship in the Physical Sciences, Math, and Computer Science
In June of 1998, Grinnell College received a generous gift from the Noyce family, whose purpose was to bring outstanding scholars and leaders to campus from the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science and chemistry to enhance and enrich the knowledge of students and faculty in subject areas new or not well represented by regular faculty.
It was specified that the Noyce Professorship is to be awarded at least once annually. The Noyce Professor will work with introductory and advanced students in classes, seminars and research projects and with faculty in teaching and in research. It is anticipated that the Noyce Professor will have a broad campus impact. The period of residence can range from several weeks to an entire semester or academic year.
Paula Smith, Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, is the Director of the Noyce Visiting Professor Program. A faculty committee manages the program under the direction of the Dean. Questions about the program or nominations should be addressed to Dean Smith.
