Formed by the Vice Provost of Research, Dr. Mo Dehghani, The CAREER Club at Stevens Institute of Technology is comprised of faculty members who have received one (or more) of three different prestigious research awards – the NSF CAREER Award, the NIH R01 Award, or the ONR Young Investigator Award. Recipients of these awards demonstrate an exemplary track record in research and education, and exemplify outstanding promise for future success in these areas. The focus of the CAREER Club is to encourage all eligible faculty to apply for these prestigious awards, as well as to organize a variety of exciting and meaningful initiatives for the Stevens research community. The list of Club members, as well as information about their awards, can be found below.

CAREER Club Members and their Awards

Inaugural President

Other Members


The National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers NSF's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from junior faculty members at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.

NIH R01 Award

The Research Project Grant (R01) is the original and historically oldest grant mechanism used by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The R01 provides support for health-related research and development based on the mission of the NIH. R01s can be investigator-initiated or can be in response to a program announcement or request for application. The Research Project Grant (R01) is an award made to support a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by the named investigator in an area representing the investigator's specific interest and competencies, based on the mission of the NIH.

ONR Young Investigator Award

The Young Investigator Program (YIP) under the Office of Naval Research (ONR) seeks to identify and support academic scientists and engineers who are in their first or second full-time tenure-track or tenure-track-equivalent academic appointment and for FY13, have begun their first appointment on or after Nov. 1, 2007, and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The program's objectives are to attract outstanding faculty members of Institutions of Higher Education to the Department of Navy's (DoN's) research program, to support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research careers.
