Emily McGuinness awarded an ASEE eFellows postdoctoral fellowship

Dr. Emily McGuinness, a postdoctoral scholar co-advised by Professors Vivian Ferry and Chris Ellison, was recently awarded an American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) eFellows postdoctoral fellowship, with funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The eFellows program places early career PhDs in engineering fields in university research postdoctoral fellowships. In addition to hands-on academic research with a faculty advisor, each fellowship cohort will participate in professional development and mentoring activities designed to prepare them for future research careers.

McGuinness is among 31 recipients awarded for 2022. The eFellows program provides postdoctoral researchers with a salary of $75,000 per year, for two years. ASEE also issues subawards to host institutions, to cover salary, benefits and up to $3,000 for travel expenses per fellow.

Congratulations Dr. McGuinness!
