The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award to assistant professor Raymond J. Sedwick (AE). The grant, in the amount of $400,000 over five years, is in support of his reasearch project entitled "CAREER: Development and Application of Compact Helicon Sources.? Dr. Sedwick's research interests include space power and propulsion, and specifically the application of nuclear fission and fusion to space transportation.

"It's always rewarding, more than just monetarily, when an agency-appointed group of recognized experts in your field can agree that your research idea is good enough to be funded," stated Sedwick. ?To have that agency be the National Science Foundation, and that funding be a CAREER grant, is really quite an honor for me."

The Clark School currently has 4 NSF Career Award winners and 1 PECASE Award winner. The CAREER Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
