John Pirtle joined iSEE in February 2019 as a Proposal Developer and Financial Specialist.
Pirtle received both his Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Masters of Public Administration from the University of Illinois at Springfield. Prior to coming to iSEE, Pirtle held grant proposal positions at Ohio State University and Illinois’ Beckman Institute and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).
As a Proposal Developer and Financial Specialist for iSEE, his day consists of preparing budget projections for faculty and other researchers, developing budgets and budget justifications, and working with granting organizations and faculty/staff to submit proposals.
Pirtle’s favorite part about the sustainability mission at Illinois is the excellent research and work that faculty are conducting and that they’re thinking about our needs for “tomorrow.”
