Julia Zaikina, assistant professor of chemistry, has been granted a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Zaikina received the award for her proposal on intermetallic synthesis by theory and in-situ studies.
This CAREER grant was awarded by the NSF’s competitive Solid State and Materials Chemistry Program in the Division of Materials Research.
The NSF’s CAREER program is a foundation-wide activity that offers the NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
The grant will fund Zaikina’s research until 2025.
