SRNT Fellows
Share |

The status of Fellow is a distinction conferred by the Society on members in recognition of outstanding contributions to the field of nicotine and tobacco research, and of service to SRNT.

The Fellows Program was launched in 2016, with the first cohort of Fellows inducted in 2017.  This program is intended to be prestigious but not elitist; any member who exceeds a certain bar may reasonably expect to be competitive for consideration.  Consistent with SRNT policy, the Fellows Program embraces inclusion and diversity. 


Eligibility for Fellows Consideration

All Full Members of SRNT who have been members for at least 5 consecutive years and who are at least 10 years past receipt of their terminal degree are eligible for Fellows Status.



Nominees must complete a standard application, which includes an area for indicating service to SRNT. Applications must include the nominee’s full CV and two letters of recommendation, with at least one from a current SRNT Member.

Candidates may self-nominate.


Review Process

Contributions to research on nicotine and tobacco will be the primary criteria for awarding of Fellow status in SRNT.  Nominations should include a statement about the candidate’s substantive impact on the field. Contributions to the field, to dissemination of science, and to the Society will also be considered.

Examples of contributions include, but are not limited to:

  • Research: Peer reviewed publications, publications in high impact journals, thematic program of research, seminal contributions that have influenced the direction of the field, sustained scholarly activity
  • Service to the field:  Journal editor, study section chair or member, relevant DHHS (or comparable) panel chair or member, outstanding mentorship, developing or chairing a nicotine and tobacco training program, development of tobacco treatment curricula
  • Service to and/or demonstrated involvement in SRNT:  Elected office; service on a committee or task force; service on the SRNT journal, Nicotine and Tobacco Research, as an editor or reviewer; program abstract reviewer; participation in an SRNT Network; presenter/regular attendee at the SRNT Annual Meeting
