CEAS Professors Kristin Yvonne Rozier and David Wendell have received the prestigious NSF CAREER Award for their promising research in the fields of aerospace and nanoscale biomedical/environmental engineering.
CEAS Assistant Professors Kristin Yvonne Rozier, PhD, and David Wendell, PhD, have received the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award to further investigate “Theoretical Foundations of the UAS in the NAS Problem (Unmanned Aerial Systems in the National Air Space)” and “Engineering a Target Selective Biological Photocatalyst for Water Disinfection,” respectively.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Successful PIs propose creative, integrative and effective research and education plans, developed within the context of the mission, goals, and resources of their organizations, while building a firm foundation for a lifetime of contributions to research, education and their integration.
One must be an Assistant Professor in the US at a qualifying institution in order to apply for the CAREER Award. The CAREER proposal is a submission from one single individual containing a very detailed plan for the next five years that will be the foundation of that person's career in academia. A maximum of three applications (in three different years) are allowed per person during their career.
