NSF Engineering boosts 146 early-career researchers with awards totaling $73M
Funding from the NSF Directorate for Engineering will give early-career engineering faculty the opportunity to explore important fundamental research questions about engineering.
The creative work of these scholar-teachers will open new frontiers of knowledge in a wide range of engineering fields and address pressing questions of great societal importance in manufacturing, health, energy, environment, infrastructure and education.
This amazing range of inquiry is enabled by funding from NSF's Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program (http://www.nsf.gov/career/). Begun in 1995, the CAREER program provides promising junior faculty the opportunity to pursue outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
A yearbook of the Class of 2015 Early Career Engineers to Watch is available at http://www.nsf.gov/eng/multimedia/engineering-career-yearbook-2015.pdf.
