    ...more that he'd have to put the grant under his own name as PI.  We have talked about co-writing grants before, but unfortunately our working relationship came to an end before we could do so - right now, he has no grant support at all.

    Reason I still have a job is because of a bigger prof that we're both collaborating with, that took my salary on.  He's near retirement and is writing a grant renewal - and it's mathematical modeling.  All I can do there is contribute preliminary data!  If he gets renewed I get a short layoff then return to my job.  If he doesn't, he retires and I leave the UM, probably for good.

    I'll certainly look into the foundations, though.  There are a couple of Admin assistants I've cultivated a very good relationship with, who'd be the first to point me in a good direction.
