Aaron Levine, assistant professor in the School of Public Policy, has received the National Science Foundation’s prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award, a particularly notable achievement for faculty working in the social sciences.

The five-year, $650,000 grant will support Levine’s project "Ethically Contentious Science and The Graduate School Experience."  His work will focus on developing an understanding of how studying an ethically contentious field in graduate school affects students' learning, their development as scientists, and their transition to the scientific workforce. 

Levine’s key research activities supported by the NSF CAREER Award include a series of qualitative interviews with early career scientists in ethically contentious fields and a panel survey of graduate students in both ethically contentious and less contentious fields.  His key educational activities include the development of a new course and a seminar series / journal club on science, technology and education policy.
