RF Webinar on NSF CAREER Program
Overview of Webinar: The Faculty Early Career Development (Career) Program is an NSF-wide activity that offers prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. The Career Program proposal should contain a well-argued set of activities that will, over a 5-year period, build a firm foundation for a lifetime of contributions to research and education in the context of the Principal Investigator’s organization. The proposed project should aim to advance the employee’s career goals and job responsibilities as well as the mission of the department or organization.
Targeted Audience: CUNY faculty who holda doctoral degree and conduct research in a field supported by NSF. Eligible applicants include untenured faculty members who hold at least a 50% tenure-track (or tenure-track-equivalent) position as an assistant professor (or equivalent title) who have not previously received a Career award.
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY-APPS and Megan Owen, Professor of Mathematics, Lehman College
