The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards to support early-career faculty who have potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. 

The NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) received over 200 CAREER proposals. After a detailed, rigorous process of evaluation, the division only funds about fifteen percent of the submitted proposals.

One of the recipients of this award was CMSE faculty Matthew Hirn, who was awarded a $400K grant for five (5) years, effective Jul. 1st, 2019, on:

"CAREER: Understanding Invariant Convolutional Neural Networks through Many Particle Physics".

Again, congratulations to Dr. Matthew Hirn for this news!
