NSF's Faculty Early Career Development Program has a 25Jul00 deadline for CISE topics. CAREER supports the early career development of faculty members likely to become academic leaders. The top new CAREER awardees are also considered for NSF's candidates in the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). See and , which replace NSF 99-110. Changes have been made in eligibility criteria, award size and duration, the PECASE program, and proposal preparation and submission. The CISE/IIS contact is Ephraim P. Glinert , (703) 306-1926. [Maria Zemankova , IRLIST, 24Apr00.] (Maria urges senior researchers in her Information and Data Management community to act as mentors to junior faculty who might apply for this program. CAREER proposals have a 30% success rate, which is higher than the rate for regular proposals. PECASE success is much lower -- and more prestigious -- but CISE/IIS/IDM candidates Renee J. Miller and Gregory H. Leazer won in 1997 and 1998.)
