BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Citing it as exemplary of Indiana University’s ability to recruit and attract leading young scientists from around the world, Indiana University Vice President for Research Jorge José has recognized five IU investigators for receiving the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award for junior faculty.
“The breadth of their work -- spanning four schools and five departments on two campuses -- speaks to Indiana University’s ability to identify, recruit and welcome the leading young teacher-scholars of this generation,” José said. “It is also a clear reflection of IU’s history of building the foundations necessary for nurturing lifetimes of leadership in education and research.”
The Faculty Early Career Development Award, known as the CAREER Award, identifies junior faculty members with the ability to integrate education and research. So every award includes an educational or outreach component that allows the investigator to possibly connect with students at every level of formal education, from grade school to graduate students working on dissertations.
