Dr. Guihua Yu Awarded DOE Early Career Award

TMI is proud to announce that Dr. Guihua Yu, MS&E faculty, was selected for a 2018 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science’s Early Career Research Program. Yu is one of only 54 selected from universities across the U.S.

The Early Career Research Program was designed to aid the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during their crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work. Under the program, university-based researchers receive at least $150,000 per year to cover salary and research expenses.

In order to qualify for the award, a researcher must be an untenured, tenure-track assistant, or associate professor at a U.S. academic institution, who received a Ph.D. within the past 10 years. Their research topics must fall within one of the DOE Office of Science’s six major program offices: Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Biological and Environmental Research, Basic Energy Sciences, Fusion Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, or Nuclear Physics. Dr. Yu was awarded under the Basic Energy Sciences Office with his topic titled “Building Artificial Layered Solids from the Bottom-up: Materials by Design to Enable New Energy Technologies”.

Please help us to congratulate Dr. Guihua Yu on this achievement! To read more about his research, please see his website here.
