NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship Opportunity Now Open

November 30th, 2020

From the Sea Grant National Office / Since 1990, Sea Grant’s joint fellowship program with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has helped strengthen collaborative efforts and further fulfill broad educational responsibilities. The two opportunities – Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics – have been combined into one NOFO for 2021. Separate review panels will still be held; therefore, all applicants must indicate their concentration – either Population and Ecosystem Dynamics (PED) or Marine Resource Economics (MRE) – on their cover sheet.  The request for federal funding has been increased to $53,000 per year for up to three years. Please click HERE for the full instructions package, or view the official announcement for more information.

This combined Federal Funding Opportunity can also be accessed on Grants.gov.

The primary goals of this program are:

– To encourage qualified applicants to pursue careers in either population and ecosystem dynamics and stock assessment or in marine resource economics.

– To increase available expertise related to these fields.

– To foster closer relationships between academic scientists and NOAA Fisheries.

– To provide real-world experience to graduate students and accelerate their career development.

And for more information on all current fellowships, please visit the NJSGC website.

Applications submitted to NJSGC must be received by 5pm on January 26, 2021. New Jersey students are encouraged to contact Dr. Peter Rowe with any questions or concerns.
