Here at UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, we are attracting some of the world's brightest young researchers to the Buffalo Niagara region. Our CAREER Award winning junior faculty are among the most promising and talented researchers in the country. With recognition from the National Science Foundation, they are building a foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
The CAREER Award is the National Science Foundation's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty. The awards are given to outstanding scientists who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through research, education, and the integration of education and research.
The award comes with a federal grant for research and education activities for five consecutive years. The National Science Foundation (NSF) grants these awards once a year. The reviewing, award and selection process is one of the most competitive within the NSF.
