Nikolay Golubev receives DOE Early Career Research Program Award
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded Branco Weiss Fellow Nikolay Golubev a prestigious Early Career Research Program Award. Prof. Golubev will receive $875,000 over five years for his research entitled “Unraveling Ultrafast Electron-Nuclear Dynamics in Molecules”. The proposed research program has the potential to make several scientific breakthroughs that address fundamental questions in atomic and molecular physics and chemistry.
Prof. Golubev is among 93 early career scientists selected from across the country to receive $135 million in total in funding for research covering a wide range of topics, from artificial intelligence to fusion energy. The Early Career Research Program aims to support exceptional researchers at the outset of their careers when many scientists do their most formative work. Awardees were selected based on peer review by outside scientific experts. This year’s awardees represent 48 universities and 12 National Labs in 27 states.
