Office of Naval Research awards $8.4M to young investigators

The Office of Naval Research today announced the award of 26 grants totaling $8.4 million as a result of the Fiscal Year 2002 ONR Young Investigator Program competition. A total of 260 proposals were submitted in response to this year's program announcement.

The Young Investigator Program supports basic research by exceptional faculty at U.S. universities who received a Ph.D. or equivalent degree within the preceding five years. Grants to their institutions provide up to $100,000 per year for three years; additional funds may be made available to purchase equipment related to the investigator's research. The funds may be applied to a variety of research costs, including salary, graduate student support, laboratory supplies, and operating costs.

The Young Investigator Program is not a "research initiation" opportunity with standards that are less demanding than ONR's regular research grant program. ONR's Young Investigator awards are intended to confer honor upon awardees beyond the research funding being provided. Young Investigators are selected on the basis of prior professional achievement, the submission of a meritorious research proposal, and evidence of strong support by their respective universities. ONR's Young Investigator awards recognize exceptional young scientists and engineers. The program supports outstanding research in a wide range of science and engineering fields that are critical to the evolution of a first-rate Navy and Marine Corps.

The Fiscal Year 2002 Young Investigator Program Awardees are:

Dr. Matthew H. Alford, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington will investigate the long-range propagation of internal waves in the ocean by means of data-mining. The research will lead to better ocean circulation models that describe the global distribution of oceanic mixing.

Dr. Alexander A. Balandin, Electrical Engineering, University of California, Riverside will conduct an experimental and theor
