Application Period is Open for the 2022 National Marine Fisheries Service-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship Program
The NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics is designed to help Sea Grant fulfill its broad educational responsibilities and to strengthen the collaboration between Sea Grant and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Since 1990, Sea Grant and NMFS have partnered to train students through this joint fellowship program in two specialized areas: population and ecosystem dynamics as well as marine resource economics.
Population and Ecosystem Dynamics Federal Funding Opportunity
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics anticipates funding at least four new Ph.D. Fellowships in 2022 to students who are 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.
Marine Resource Economics Federal Funding Opportunity
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics anticipates funding one new Ph.D. Fellowship in 2022 to students who are interested in careers related to the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources.
Applications are due to NJSGC by 5PM on January 27, 2022. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Peter Rowe, Acting Executive Director NJSGC for more details. Please forward this opportunity to interested PhD students. Review the 2022 2022 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Student Guide and the Student Applicant Guide to Sea Grant Fellowships to Sea Grant Fellowships for application preparation tips. This combined Federal Funding Opportunity can also be accessed here. If the link does not work search for NOAA-OAR-SG-2022-2007042.
The goals of the NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowship 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.
