The University of Iowa announced Wednesday that Assistant Chemistry Professor Jan-Uwe Rohde has been selected to receive a Faculty Early Career Development Award. It is the highest honor the National Science Foundation gives to junior faculty.

His research focuses on transition metal compounds that contain a unique type of metal. His research team will investigate the compound’s reactivity, and the studies may ultimately improve the efficiency of synthetic processes, according to a UI press release.

Rohde came to the UI in 2005 after finishing his postdoctoral research at the University of Minnesota from 2000-2002 and his doctorate at the University of Kiel, Germany, in 1999, the press release said.

The award will total approximately $550,000 over the next five years.
