News for Researchers

Posted October 2, 2019 by Ashley Washburn

Nebraska’s early-career faculty are encouraged to apply for the Office of Research and Economic Development’s National Science Foundation CAREER Club, a nine-month program designed to support and guide researchers through the process of developing a compelling and competitive proposal to NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development Program. Applications for the 2019-2020 program are due at 5 p.m. Oct. 31.

Club activities, ranging from project idea conception to submission, include engagement with NSF program officers, mentoring and coaching from established faculty and experienced administrators and staff, access to an external consultant, specialized training around broader impacts (i.e., education/outreach), and pre-submission panel review.

Participants will be selected via a competitive process, outlined on the CAREER Club webpage, and notified of their selection by mid-November.

Nebraska has a strong track record of CAREER program success. Six faculty members received CAREER awards in 2019, tying a university record set in 2018. Visit the NSF CAREER Club webpage to learn more and to apply. For more information, contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, 402-472-2894.
