This week, we feature Josh Jessen, grants and contracts specialist for sponsored programs.

Josh Jessen
  • I’m not kidding when I tell people this is the best job I’ve ever had. I get to work with some of the brightest, creative people in the Midwest — especially my extraordinarily smart co-workers in Sponsored Programs Administration. I don’t think most people grasp the complexity involved, or how hard we work, to help researchers stay in compliance and grow research for UNMC.

  • During my illustrious career, I’ve worked as a public school teacher, a debate coach and have dabbled in the world of community nonprofits.

  • I’ve kept the same haircut for the last 17 years.

  • I’m married to my wonderful wife Laura, and we have a very smart little 2-year-old named Peter.

  • We just found out we have another baby on the way!
