The Young Investigator Program seeks to identify and support academic scientists and engineers who are in their first or second full-time tenure-track or tenure-track-equivalent academic appointment and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The program aims to attract outstanding university faculty members to the Department of Navy's research program, support their research, and encourage their teaching and research careers.
