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
Join us on December 14, 2022 at 12 Noon – 1pm

RF Webinar on NSF PIRE Program
November 30 (12 noon – 1pm), NSF Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) Grants
Overview of Webinar: International engagement is increasingly critical to keeping the U.S. globally competitive at the frontiers of knowledge. The PIRE program supports a set of cutting-edge interdisciplinary projects focused on use-inspired research on climate change and/or clean energy in which advances require international collaboration. PIRE projects support team readiness to grow into prominent enduring international hubs of research excellence that advance knowledge, empower communities, and generate discovery and innovative technological solutions at a global scale. PIRE support is intended to scale up and expand research in all science and engineering disciplines and in interdisciplinary areas by enhancing and building partnerships beyond the PIRE funding period and catalyzing readiness to grow to center level activity. PIRE promotes cooperation among scientists and engineers from all nations and enables research at the leading edge of science and engineering by facilitating partnerships with others nationally and internationally, by educating and preparing a diverse, world-class STEM workforce, and by fostering institutional capacity for international collaboration. The PIRE projects should enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in science and engineering in both research and education.
Targeted Audience: CUNY Science and Engineering faculty
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY-APPS and Masahiro Kawaji, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, CCNY

ASRC Communicating Your Science Event Series
Applied Science: A Conversation about STEM Higher Education & Science Communication With Malcolm Gladwell
Join us on December 2, 2022 at 2 p.m. for a special Communicating Your Science event with Malcolm Gladwell, New York Times best-selling author, social commentator and host of the podcast Revisionist History, where he’ll discuss the role that public higher education institutions can play in communicating science and ensuring that STEM education and research data are available and accessible to all.
Malcolm Gladwell’s recently released audio book, I Hate the Ivy League: Riffs and Rants on Elite Education, is a collection of the writer’s podcast episodes on higher education.
During this insightful conversation Gladwell and CUNY Graduate Center Dean for the Sciences Josh Brumberg will discuss:
- The role public higher education institutions have in making science more accessible and valuable to the public
- How we can make STEM education and careers more accessible to underrepresented communities
- How students and faculty at public higher education institutions should be thinking about their roles as science communicators and facilitators of STEM education access
- What being a reporter revealed about communicating with the public
Please register to attend. There will be time for Q&A.
Panel Discussion on the NSF LEAPS-MPS Program
Date: Wednesday, Dec. 14, 3 – 4pm.
Topic: NSF LEAPS-MPS Program
Panelists: Diana Hubbard (Brooklyn College), Vincent Martinez (Hunter College), Nicholas Vlamis (Queens College), all recipients of the LEAPS-MPS awards
Register at: RSVP for the LEAPS-MPS Discussion (encouraged but not required)
Zoom Info: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89690957244 Meeting ID: 896 9095 7244
Event Flyer: Flyer
Description The NSF LEAPS-MPS Program was recently launched (in 2021) with the goal to support Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) principal investigators in launching their research careers such that LEAPS-MPS awards are followed by competitive CAREER or individual-investigator grant submissions. It is particularly suitable for our junior faculty at CUNY because of its emphasis in institutions that do not traditionally receive significant amounts of NSF-MPS funding, such as some minority-serving institutions (MSIs), predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs), and Carnegie Research 2 (R2) universities. LEAPS-MPS has the additional goal of achieving excellence through diversity and aims to broaden participation to include members from groups historically excluded and currently underrepresented in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences, including Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Native Pacific Islanders.
In this panel discussion, our CUNY colleagues who have just received the LEAPS-MPS awards will share their experience in the application process. This will be a virtual event through a zoom meeting. Questions can be asked through the registration form, or during the panel.
In addition to this panel, NSF will have a Webinar on Nov. 30, 2022. Information available at MPS LEAPS Webinar. We expect the NSF webinar to be more on the regulations and advice from NSF’s viewpoint, while our panel is more of a conversation with the award winners of the program. Both events are worthwhile for those interested in the program.
