Gulf Research Program’s Early-Career Research Fellowship

Applications open July 13 – August 24, 2022


The Gulf Research Program (GRP) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has an open funding opportunity for early-career researchers interested in 1)Offshore Energy Safety or 2) Education Research.


The GRP’s ’s Early-Career Research Fellowship supports emerging scientific leaders as they take risks on research ideas not yet tested, pursue unique collaborations, and build a network of colleagues who share their interest in improving offshore energy system safety and the well-being of coastal communities and ecosystems.


Over the two-year grant, fellows will receive $76,000 in relatively unrestricted funds. Because the early years of a researcher’s career are a critical time, the financial support and mentoring this fellowship provides help recipients navigate this period with independence, flexibility, and a built-in support network.


Offshore Energy Safety Track

For the 2022-2024 Application Cycle, the Offshore Energy Safety track goal focuses on contributing to the understanding, management, and reduction of systemic risk in offshore energy activities.


Education Research Track

For the 2022-2024 Application Cycle, the Education Research track goal focuses on contributing to the advancement of K-12 educational equity related to science and environmental literacy in the Gulf of Mexico region or Alaska by considering the recent impact of disasters on educational opportunities for students in vulnerable communities.


Eligibility

Applicants must, at the time of application:

  • Hold a permanent, fully independent position as an investigator, faculty member, clinician scientist, or scientific team lead in industry, academia, or a research organization. A postdoc is not considered a fully independent position.
  • Be an early-career scientist who has received their eligible degree within the past 10 years (on or after September 1, 2012).
  • Hold a doctoral degree (e.g., PhD, ScD, EngD, MD, DrPH) in the engineering and physical sciences, earth and life sciences, social and behavioral sciences, health sciences and medicine, or interdisciplinary scientific fields relevant to the charge of the Gulf Research Program.
  • Be affiliated with a non-federal U.S. institution that has a valid tax ID number.
  • Not be currently employed by the U.S. federal government.
