NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship

The National Marine Fisheries-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship is for PhD 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 expects to award at least three new Ph.D. Fellowships in 2019 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. These fellowships can provide support for up to three years. 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.
