School of Physics and Astronomy Professor Vlad Pribiag has received an National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Development (CAREER) Award. The award which amounts to more than $642,000 for a period of five years was given for his research in "Backscattering, Confinement and Superconductivity in a Two-Dimensional Topological Insulator."

The CAREER Award is given to junior faculty, who "exemplify the role of teacher-scholar." There are only about 600 CAREER awards given per year across all fields of scientific endeavor.
