NOAA National Marine Fisheries Fellowships

This opportunity is currently closed.

NOAA National Sea Grant and NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service offer graduate fellowships in two specialized areas: population dynamics and marine resource economics.

Population and Ecosystem Dynamics

The Fellowship Program expects to award at least three new PhD Fellowships in 2017 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.

Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices. The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics meets NOAA’s Healthy Oceans goal of “Marine fisheries, habitats, biodiversity sustained with healthy and productive ecosystems.”

The expected annual award per Fellow will be $46,000 (federal plus matching funds), jointly funded by NOAA Fisheries and Sea Grant.

Marine Resource Economics

The Fellowship Program generally awards two new PhD Fellowships each year 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. 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 Offices. The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Marine Resource Economics meets NOAA’s Healthy Oceans goal of “Marine fisheries, habitats, biodiversity sustained with healthy
and productive ecosystems.”

The expected annual award per Fellow will be $46,000 (Federal plus matching funds), which is funded jointly by NOAA Fisheries and Sea Grant.
