NMFS fellowships in population and ecosystem dynamics available

Applications for the National Marine Fisheries Service – Sea Grant Graduate Fellowship Programs in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics should be submitted to Connecticut Sea Grant by 5 p.m. Jan. 28, 2018.

The fellowships are available to US citizens who are graduate students enrolled in PhD degree programs in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. Ph.D. candidates interested in careers related to marine ecosystem and population dynamics, with a focus on modeling and managing systems of living marine resources can receive up to three years of funding.

Sea Grant and NMFS, with required institutional matching funds, expect to support up to two new fellows in population and ecosystem dynamics 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 participating NMFS science centers or laboratories 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, Jan. 26, 2018. Those intending to apply should contact the Connecticut Sea Grant Research Coordinator, Dr. Syma Ebbin.
