By Hudson Institute communications

Six Early Career Researchers have been chosen for the inaugural Hudson Institute Emerging Leaders program.

Awardees Dr Miranda Davies-Tuck, Dr Stacey Ellery, Dr Robert Galinsky, Dr Cristina Giogha, Dr Courtney McDonald and Dr Jun Yang have been selected to participate in the prestigious annual program, which aims to empower and support high-achieving Early Career Researchers, helping them towards the goal of becoming independent researchers.

Established by Hudson Institute’s Career Development Committee in collaboration with leadership trainers, WALT Institute, the tailored scheme focuses on preparing awardees for the responsibility of managing an independent research group, providing tools to cope with the pressure of a research career, and developing the confidence to create change in the scientific community.

The initiative will provide awardees with personalised and comprehensive leadership training and mentoring throughout 2020. The wider impact of the program includes Awardees sharing their knowledge and experiences with other Early Career Researchers, ensuring what they have learnt will help others.

Our congratulations goes to Dr Davies-Tuck, Dr Ellery, Dr Galinsky, Dr Giogha, Dr McDonald and Dr Yang for their selection into the program, which recognises their outstanding achievements thus far and demonstrated leadership potential, representing a promising future for Hudson Institute.

“Establishing a sustainable career in medical research is incredibly difficult; as a result, highly talented young scientists are too often lost to other careers. The program provides the Awardees with leadership skills and practical tools to bolster their resilience, ensuring they reach their potential as future leaders” commented Career Development Committee Chair, Dr Minni Anko.

Awardee, Dr McDonald said it was an incredible opportunity.

“I’m really excited to be selected as an Emerging Leader within the institute. I hope it will allow me to develop my leadership skills which will be crucial for establishing my own independent research career.”
