The National Marine Fisheries – National Sea Grant Fellowships
North Carolina Sea Grant is accepting applications from North Carolina doctoral students for the 2023 National Marine Fisheries – National Sea Grant Fellowships in both “Population and Ecosystem Dynamics” and “Marine Resource Economics.” Applications are due to North Carolina Sea Grant by 5 p.m. Eastern, on Jan. 25, 2023.
These fellowships provide hands-on research experience, while also fostering a direct connection with NOAA. Each fellow will work with a mentor from NOAA Fisheries.
There will be five fellows total in the “Population and Ecosystem Dynamics” and “Marine Resource Economics” categories, and thus applicants must follow instructions to identify their specific concentration.
These opportunities are open to U.S. citizens who are doctoral students in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. North Carolina Sea Grant only accepts applications from doctoral students enrolled in North Carolina academic institutions. Potential applicants from other states interested in the national program can access information from the National Sea Grant Office.
Each fellowship offers funding for up to three years. Cost sharing by the selected student’s institution of higher education is required. Funding is contingent on availability of funds and satisfactory performance by the recipients.
Sea Grant champions diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and accessibility (DEIJA) by recruiting, retaining, and preparing a diverse workforce, and by proactively engaging and serving the diverse populations of coastal communities. The program is committed to building inclusive research, extension, communication, and education programs that serve people with unique backgrounds, circumstances, needs, perspectives, and ways of thinking. Sea Grant encourages applicants of all ages, races, ethnicities, national origins, gender identities, sexual orientations, disabilities, cultures, religions, marital statuses, education levels, job classifications, incomes, types of veteran status, and types of socioeconomic status.
North Carolina applicants must apply through North Carolina Sea Grant’s eSeaGrant online portal at go.ncsu.edu/ncesg.
