CORVALLIS - Two engineering faculty members at Oregon State University have received Faculty Early Career Development, or CAREER grants from the National Science Foundation.

The researchers were among 359 individuals honored with this prestigious award, which each year provides funds from $200,000 to $500,000 over four to five years to help some of the most promising scientists and engineers in the nation develop their research, education and careers.

Receiving the grants at OSU were Stephen Dickenson, an assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, and Gregg Rothermel, an assistant professor of computer science. Dickenson is an expert on soils, foundations and earthquake-induced soil liquefaction, and Rothermel studies computer software, testing, maintenance and quality.
