The Office of the Vice President for Research has recently subscribed to Pivot, by ProQuest. Pivot is a web-based discovery and workflow tool that combines a comprehensive source of global funding opportunities with the largest collection of scholar profiles into one intuitive solution.

With Pivot, faculty, research administrators, postdocs, and graduate students can easily explore new avenues for funding, view funding opportunities uniquely matched to their scholar profile, collaborate with colleagues and manage the results of the process to build a funding strategy that supports both immediate and long-term funding needs. For more information or assistance with building your profile or searches, please contact Maureen Piekos at Click here for PIVOT FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES DATABASE OVERVIEW AND INSTRUCTIONS.

  • SBU-wide access to individualized profiles for every researcher on campus
  • Funding opportunities, searchable by discipline and keyword, are collected from a variety of sources 
  • Automated weekly emails are generated based on Faculty Profile keywords 


This database system captures and records the research interests and expertise of SBU’s researchers. 

Main features of the Faculty Profile Database:

  • Reflects research interests, expertise, career and educational histories, lists of grants received and publications, and keywords 
  • Available to the campus in a web-based searchable format, with several views and dynamic search features
  • Tool for researchers looking to identify collaborators
