The National Marine Fisheries Service/Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics (UPDATED)
Since 1999, Sea Grant and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) have partnered to train students through this joint fellowship program available to US citizens who are graduate students enrolled in PhD degree programs in academic institutions in the US and its territories. Only US citizens are eligible to apply. Foreign Nationals are not eligible.
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics expects to award at least three new Ph.D. Fellowships in 2019 to students interested in careers related to marine ecosystem 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.
