Gulf Research Program Fellowships

Gulf Research Program Early-Career Research Fellowships

Application deadline: February 6

Over its 30-year duration, the Gulf Research Program of the National Academies will work to enhance oil system safety and the protection of human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico and other U.S. outer continental shelf areas by seeking to improve understanding of the region’s interconnecting human, environmental, and energy systems and fostering application of these insights to benefit Gulf communities, ecosystems, and the Nation. The Early-Career Research Fellowships will recognize professionals at the critical pretenure phase of their careers for exceptional leadership, past performance, and potential for future contributions to improving oil system safety, human health, or the environment. These two-year fellowships will be awarded to tenure-track (pretenure) faculty (or the equivalent) at colleges, universities, and research institutions. Up to five Fellows will be selected in 2015.
