Job Description

Early-Career Research Fellowship
Human Health & Community Resilience Track; Offshore Energy Safety Track

Applications Open: January 10, 2024
Applications Close: March 6, 2024 | 5 PM ET

The Gulf Research Program’s Early-Career Research Fellowship (ECRF) 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 $76,000 in relatively unrestricted funds and mentoring this fellowship provides help recipients navigate this period with independence, flexibility, and a built-in support network.

Track Goals

For the 2024-2026 Application Cycle, the Human Health and Community Resilience track goal focuses on contributing to the understanding of the role that resilience-based interventions* play in addressing the root causes of climate, disaster, and/or health vulnerability that are associated with health disparities** in communities throughout the Gulf of Mexico region.

*Any intervention that aims to ‘increase the ability of a community to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, or more successfully adapt to [climate change, disasters, and/or environmental health threats],’ (NAS (2012), Disaster Resilience, National Academies Press, Examples of resilience-based interventions include climate adaptation, disaster mitigation, health equity etc.

** The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines health disparities as, “preventable differences in the burden, disease, injury, violence, or in opportunities to achieve optimal health experienced by socially disadvantaged racial, ethnic, and other population groups and communities.”

For the 2024-2026 Application Cycle, the Offshore Energy Safety track goal focuses on contributing to the understanding, management, and reduction of systemic risk in offshore energy activities.

Note: Experience in research pertaining to the identification and reduction of systemic risk in other industries is also desired. Through the application process, applicants will be asked how they intend to apply their systemic risk experience, research, and concepts to offshore energy activities.
