The National Science Foundation recently presented the two Rowan University professors with CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program awards.
That’s heady for two professors fewer than 10 years out of graduate school. CAREER awards are as prestigious as they come for young faculty, going to those the NSF determines “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.”
Among the elite
“This places Rowan University in the company of the elite research universities in the country,” said Dr. James Newell, Rowan’s provost.
The government agency awarded Haase, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, an anticipated $500,000 for “CAREER: Nanostructured Particle Stabilized Bi-continuous Emulsions: Formation Principles, Structure-Function Relationships and Biphasic Transport,” to be used from May 2018 through April 2023.
The NSF awarded Moura-Letts, an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, an anticipated $525,000 for his project "CAREER: Metallooxaziridines for the Synthesis of Nitrogen-Containing Three-Membered Heterocycles,” to be used between May 2018 and April 2023.
