Professor Junqiao Wu recipient of 2 Awards!
Professor Junqiao Wu, MSE, receives both the NSF Faculty Early Career Award and DOE Early Career Award! Congratulations to Professor Wu!
In March 2011, Professor Junqiao Wu, MSE, was awarded the NSF Faculty Early Career Award. The NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization.
Also, Junqiao Wu received the DOE Early Career Award. The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science announced in May 2011 that 65 scientists from across the nation have been selected for five-year awards under the Office's Early Career Research Program. The five-year awards are designed to bolster the nation's scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work. Awardees were selected from a pool of about 1150 university- and national laboratory-based applicants. Selection was based on peer review by outside scientific experts.
Professor Junqiao Wu is an alumnus of the Graduate Group in Applied Science and Technology, obtaining the Ph.D. in 2002. He is currently a faculty member in the Materials Science and Engineering Department. Congratulations to Professor Wu!
