Old Dominion University's Office of Research will be hosting a round table discussion for junior faculty who have an interest in applying for the NSF Early Career (CAREER) Development Program.

The discussion will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 30, in Hughes Hall Conference Room 2114.

The CAREER Program is a National Science Foundation-wide activity that offers the Foundation's most prestigious awards for new faculty members. The CAREER program recognizes and supports the early career development activities of those teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st Century. This year the submissions are due July 20 - 22, based upon discipline.

To be eligible to apply for this program faculty must:
- hold a doctoral degree (as evidenced by the dated diploma) in a field of science or engineering supported by NSF
- be untenured
- have not previously received an NSF PECASE or CAREER award. (Prior or concurrent Federal support for other types of awards or for non-duplicative research does not preclude eligibility.)
- have not competed more than two times in the NSF CAREER Program
- by October 1st following the July deadline for submission, must be employed in a tenure-track position as an assistant professor (or equivalent title).

Two ODU faculty members who have recently received this award will be present to discuss their experiences and offer strategies for successful applications. Discussion will also include budget development, institutional requirements, and the electronic submission process - FastLane.

Space is limited for this small venue discussion and RSVPs are requested no later than Friday, April 23, to Susan Perkins, 683-3148 or srperkin@odu.edu.
