2018 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics
Grants & Policies: Funding Opportunities: Current RFPs

Closes at: 5:00 PM Eastern on Friday, January 26, 2018

Applications are being accepted for the 2018 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics (FFO #: NOAA-OAR-SG-2018-2005442).

The Fellowship Program expects to award at least two new PhD Fellowships in 2018 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".

Additional application information can be found on the NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowship Web site.
