Congratulations are in order! Assistant Professor Victor Acosta, at Physics and CHTM, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award!

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most 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. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from early-career faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply. 

We are incredibly happy for Dr. Acosta on this outstanding accomplishment and are excited to see his research.
