NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship
The NOAA National Marine Fisheries-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship is for Ph.D. students interested in careers related to (1) marine ecosystem and population dynamics, with a focus on modeling and managing systems of living marine resources, or (2) economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources.
- Population and ecosystem dynamics
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics anticipates funding at least four new Ph.D. fellowships in 2023 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 evaluating 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
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics anticipates funding at least one new Ph.D. fellowship in 2023 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.
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships are available to US citizens who are graduate students enrolled in Ph.D. degree programs in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. Only U.S. citizens are eligible to apply. Foreign Nationals are not eligible.
Length of Fellowship
The fellowship can provide support for up to three years for highly qualified graduate students working towards a Ph.D. in population dynamics, ecosystem dynamics, resource or environmental economics, or a related field such as wildlife biology, fishery biology, natural resource management, marine biology, quantitative ecology, applied mathematics, applied statistics, or simulation modeling.
