The Office of Research will host an annual National Science Foundation Career Award round table, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 31 in the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center, room 202. Interested faculty can register for the event through the link below.

The NSF's Faculty Early Career Development Program offers the foundation's most prestigious awards for pre-tenure faculty. Career Awards provide up to five years of funding to enable junior faculty to develop careers as outstanding teacher-scholars.

The round table is designed to provide prospective Career Award applicants with advice and information about resources.

During the morning session, three recent Career Award recipients will speak about their experiences submitting Career proposals and share tips for developing competitive applications. Career Award recipients scheduled to participate are: Chad Brassil, assistant professor of biological sciences; Eva Schubert, assistant professor of electrical engineering; and Mehmet Can Vuran, assistant professor of computer science and engineering.

A free buffet lunch will be provided at noon. The afternoon session will include presentations by local education and outreach experts who will share ideas for integrating education and research activities.

Afternoon presenters include Kathy French, education coordinator at the NU State Museum; Barb Hoppe Johnson, education director and co-founder of Bright Lights; Sarah Zulkoski-Benson, outreach coordinator for Nebraska EPSCoR; and staff from the Office of Proposal Development.
