[Source: Az Central] – Science Foundation Arizona will spend up to $7 million over five years to lure post-doctoral scientists and engineers to research labs at state universities, part of the group’s effort to spur research and build the state’s technology workforce.

Science foundation officials say the new program will fund five post-doctoral positions for labs at Arizona State University and two slots at Northern Arizona University beginning the spring semester 2011. The University of Arizona was not included this time, but foundation officials expect UA will compete in later rounds.
