Description:
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.

Because the early years of a researcher's career are a critical time, the relatively unrestricted funds and mentoring this fellowship provides help recipients navigate this period with independence, flexibility, and a built-in support network.

An award of $76,000 is paid to each fellow's institution in the form of a two-year grant. $75,000 is available for the fellow to use for research-related expenses, including equipment purchases, professional travel, professional development courses, trainee support, salary, or any other costs directly related to the fellow's research. The remaining $1,000 of the award serves as an honorarium for a mentor.

Applicants must, at the time of application:

- Hold a fully independent position as an investigator, faculty member, clinician scientist, or scientific team lead in industry or academia. Applicants must not receive tenure before September if in a tenure track position. A postdoc is not considered a fully independent position.

- Be early-career scientists who have received their eligible degree within the past 10 years.

- Hold an eligible degree (PhD, ScD, EngD, MD, DrPH, or DVM) in the social and behavioral sciences, health sciences and medicine, engineering and physical sciences, earth and life sciences, or interdisciplinary scientific fields relevant to a Gulf Research Program initiative.

- 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. Full-time, paid, permanent federal employees are not eligible for the fellowship.
