Announcing the inaugural scholars for the
2019 Early Career Interdisciplinary Scholars Program

The SRCD Interdisciplinary Committee is excited to announce that the 2019 Early Career Interdisciplinary Scholars are:

  • Lauren Cycyk, Ph.D., Department of Special Education and Clinical Sciences, University of Oregon
  • Grace Wing Ka Ho, Ph.D., The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Nursing
  • Lindsey Bullinger, Ph.D., School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Julia Kobulsky, Ph.D., School of Social Work, Temple University
  • Carol Duh-Leong, M.D., M.P.P., Departments of Pediatrics and Population Health, NYU School of Medicine

This is the inaugural year of Early Career Interdisciplinary Scholars Program. The program is designed to encourage and support research in developmental science by outstanding early career scholars who have trained in a discipline outside of psychology or human development but have interests that intersect with developmental science in important ways. This years’ scholars represent the disciplines of pediatrics, communication science, social work, public policy, and nursing. They will be paired with senior developmental scientists who will provide mentorship to help them integrate developmental methods and models into their research. They will also attend the 2019 Biennial Meeting in Baltimore to gain exposure to developmental research, explore new ideas and collaborations, and share their own work with SRCD members. To learn more about the scholars and about interdisciplinary research at SRCD, please join the Interdisciplinary Committee, the Early Career Interdisciplinary Scholars, and a distinguished panel of interdisciplinary researchers at the “Interdisciplinary Developmental Science Data Blitz and Career Panel” on Friday March 22nd from 3-4:30 during the Biennial Meeting.

We congratulate these scholars, as well as the many other outstanding applicants. The Interdisciplinary Committee was thrilled to see many strong interdisciplinary candidates and we encourage any applicants who were not selected to apply again in the future and to participate in the Interdisciplinary events at the upcoming Biennial Meeting.
