2018 CAREER Award Recipients

Ten UC Riverside assistant professors have received prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) awards from the National Science Foundation. CAREER Awards last for five years and support early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.

UC Riverside has more active CAREER Awards, totaling over $16.5 million, than any other public university in California.

“These prestigious awards are very competitive and the fact that UC Riverside received so many reflects the depth and breadth of UC Riverside’s research, as well as our institutional commitment to developing future leaders in research and education,” said Michael Pazzani, vice chancellor for Research and Economic Development and professor of computer science and engineering.
