Top researcher-educators receive Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers

Today, the White House announced 20 recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), one of the most prestigious awards to honor investigators in the early stages of promising research and education careers. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on scientists and engineers beginning independent careers.

President Bush honors the 20 leaders for their extensive research accomplishments and noteworthy educational contributions. The 2005 winners of the NSF-sponsored awards bring the total number to 200 since the program began in 1996.

Awardees are chosen from 350 to 400 assistant professors who have received grants from NSF's Faculty Early Career Program (CAREER) in the same year of their nomination for the president's award. CAREER awards range from $400,000 to nearly $1 million over five years to support career research and education.

The awards announced today include six engineers: Silvia Ferrari, Duke University; Ashley James, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities; Scott D. Kelly and Michael S. Strano, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Suzie H. Pun, University of Washington; and James E. Smay, Oklahoma State University.

Four computer and information scientists are also being honored. They include Marina Bers, Tufts University; Thomas L. Martin, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; William E. Schuler, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities; and Janet M. Wang, University of Arizona.

Five received awards in the mathematical and physical sciences: Anna K. Mapp, University of Michigan; Jonathan C. Mattingly, Duke University; Benjamin J. McCall, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Aravinthan D. Samuel, Harvard University; and Eugene J. Billiot, Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi.
