Assistant Professor Nam Trang has been awarded a CAREER grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his project Current and Future Developments of the Core Model Induction. The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. A CAREER award is viewed by the Division Of Mathematical Sciences of the NSF as the highest distinction that the NSF can provide to junior researchers in the mathematical sciences. This is the first time a UNT mathematician has received this prestigious award.
Ralf Schmidt (Chair of the Department of Mathematics) on Professor Trang's achievement: "We are extremely proud to have a CAREER award winner in our department. Dr. Trang is one of only 14 UNT researchers in the last 12 years who have received this recognition. Congratulations on a great achievement!"
