Early Career Awards

The Early Career Research Program supports the development of individual research programs of outstanding scientists early in their careers and stimulates research careers in the disciplines supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science. Opportunities exist in the following program areas: Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR), Biological and Environmental Research (BER), Basic Energy Sciences (BES), Fusion Energy Sciences (FES), High Energy Physics (HEP), and Nuclear Physics (NP).

For more specific information, see the DOE Office of Science Early Career Research Program website.
