Professor Elaina Sutley Recipient of 2019 Early-Career Research Fellowship

Thursday, September 5, 2019

The Gulf Research Program announced the recipients of our 2019 Early-Career Research Fellowships. Professor Elaina Sutley is one of the recipients. These competitive awards will support the development of twenty emerging scientific leaders at the critical pre-tenure phase of their careers as they take risks on new research ideas, pursue unique collaborations, and build a network of colleagues who share their interest in improving offshore energy system safety and enhancing the resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems.

The Early-Career Research Fellowships are awarded to individuals who demonstrate a strong scientific or technical background, superior scholarship, effective communication skills, and an ability to work across disciplines, among other attributes.

Fellows receive their awards in the form of a two-year grant, paid to their institutions, for research expenses and professional development. Fellows also receive professional guidance from a mentor who is a senior faculty member at their home institution to foster their development as leaders.
