Six ISR graduate students have been selected to participate in the Clark School's Future Faculty Program (FFP). FFP was introduced to increase the number of Clark School Ph.D. graduates who obtain academic positions, and in particular, faculty positions in prestigious engineering schools. The program is also intended to improve the preparation of students for academic careers so that they can better succeed once they obtain such a position.

The entering the program are: Graham Alldredge and Matteo Mischiati, advised by Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR); Mustafa Beyaz, advised by Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR); Yongqiang Wang, advised by Professor Steven Marcus (ECE/ISR) and Professor Michael Fu (BGMT/ISR); Kleoniki Vlachou, advised by Associate Professor David Lovell (CEE/ISR); and Danielle Chrun, advised by Associate Professor Michel Cukier (ME/ISR).

The program is highly selective. Fellows are chosen by an anonymous committee based on the applicants' motivation for becoming a faculty member and potential for securing a tenure-track faculty position at a top-50 engineering school. Students admitted to the program are designated as Future Faculty Fellows and receive a supplementary stipend of $2,000 for each semester in the program, totaling up to $10,000 over the course of the program, in addition to other financial support they may receive.

The FFP consists of a sequence of three one-credit training seminars, a teaching practicum and a research mentoring practicum. The program takes between three and five semesters to complete depending on the timing of the practicums.
