Applications open: NASEM early-career research fellowship

The NASEM Gulf Research Program is accepting applications for the 2021 GRP Early-Career Research Fellowship Track 1: Human Health and Community Resilience. Applications are due January 13.

The Gulf Research Program’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.

The Early Career Research Fellowship’s Human Health and Community Resilience track aligns with one of Gulf Research Program’s five program areas, and narrows the focus of the fellowship to support the most relevant research to the goals and objectives of the Board on Gulf Health and Resilience.

For the 2021-2023 Application Cycle, the Human Health and Community Resilience track goal focuses on contributing to the advancement of health equity in the Gulf of Mexico region or Alaska by considering the social determinants of health.
