Knight and Espinosa Land Hughes Early Career Scientist Awards


March 2009

Professors Rob Knight and Joaquin Espinosa are among fifty of the nation's best early career science faculty who have received the prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute Early Career Scientist Award for 2009. They will each receive a six-year appointment to the Institute, allowing them the freedom to explore their best ideas without worrying about where to find the money to fund those experiments. The award provides both Knight and Espinosa with their full salary, benefits, and a research budget of $1.5 million each over their six-year appointments. The Institute will also cover other expenses, including research space and the purchase of critical equipment.
