Applications may be submitted for the 2022 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics.
Sea Grant anticipates funding at least four new Ph.D. fellowships in 2022 to students who are interested in careers related to marine ecosystems and population dynamics, with a focus on modeling and managing systems of living marine resources. The emphasis will be on the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing marine ecosystems for assessing the status of fish, invertebrate, and other targeted species stocks and for assessing the status of marine mammals, seabirds, and other protected species.
Sea Grant anticipates funding one new Ph.D. fellowship in 2022 to a student who is interested in a career related to the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources.
Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices. The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics meets NOAA’s healthy oceans goal of “marine fisheries, habitats, biodiversity sustained with healthy and productive ecosystems.”
These fellowships can provide support for up to three years.
Eligible interested students must submit application materials by 5:00 PM, local time on January 27, 2022 to eligible Sea Grant programs. Interested students enrolled towards a degree in a graduate or professional program in a state or territory served by a Sea Grant program must submit to that program. When applying, be sure to specify your project’s focus area in your title page: either Population and Ecosystem Dynamics (PED), or Marine Resource Economics (MRE).
