Seven University of Nevada, Reno faculty members have received a 2022 CAREER Award. This latest cohort follows the eight awards received by faculty in 2021, the most ever in a single year at the University.

Research & Proposal Development Services, part of Research & Innovation, assists in the development of CAREER proposals, including brokering connections to community partners to improve broader impacts and education plans. Personalized support for CAREER proposals includes multiple rounds of conceptual and technical editing, external review, timeline management and one-on-one consultations.
“We provide training and support to all faculty launching an independent research career, and we continue that support through specialized programs that enhance submissions for highly competitive awards, like the CAREER,” said Kate Dunkelberger, proposal editor. “Our goal is to partner with our researchers to facilitate the thoughtful planning and outstanding communication required to achieve such a major accolade.”
“The CAREER Award recognizes the recipients’ early-career success and their potential … what they can do for their discipline, the scientific community and the nation,” said Mridul Gautam, University vice president for research and innovation. “It is wonderful to see the increasing notice of our early-career faculty through this prestigious NSF program.”
“The CAREER Award is only a beginning,” Gautam said. “Our past awardees are demonstrating what this program is about. They are doing very well and making strong research and education contributions.”
“The CAREER Award is one of the most eminent honors for a researcher in that it recognizes early-career faculty who integrate teaching and outreach with their research,” University President Brian Sandoval said. “Through their contributions and work, these faculty members are fulfilling the land-grant mission and making an important difference for our students and our state.”
Forty-nine CAREER Awards have been awarded to University of Nevada, Reno faculty since 1996. This includes 25 CAREER Awards over the last five years.
