NMFS fellowships in marine resource economics available

Applications for the National Marine Fisheries Service – Sea Grant Graduate Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics are due to Connecticut Sea Grant by 5 p.m. Jan. 26, 2018.

The Fellowships are available to U.S. citizens who are graduate students enrolled in PhD degree programs in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. Ph.D. students 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 can receive two years of funding.

Sea Grant and NMFS, with required institutional matching funds, expect to support two new fellows in Marine Resource Economics in the amount of $46,000 per year, to commence Aug. 1, 2018. Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS science centers or laboratories. Fellows will have summer internships at these institutions and may work, as necessary, at the participating NMFS facility during some or all of the academic year at the mutual discretion of mentor, faculty adviser, and fellow.

Applications are due to the applicant’s local state Sea Grant program by 5 p.m. EST on Jan. 26, 2018. Those intending to apply should contact the Connecticut Sea Grant Research Coordinator, Dr. Syma Ebbin.
