The National Marine Fisheries – National Sea Grant Fellowships
The 2022 National Marine Fisheries – National Sea Grant Fellowships in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics provides doctoral students enrolled in NC institutions with hands-on research experience and a direct connection with NOAA.
Each fellow will work with a mentor from NOAA Fisheries. Fellowships offer funding for up to three years, and 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, and inclusion, working to create a marine science workforce that reflects the communities the program serves. We are recruiting, retaining, and preparing a diverse workforce, and proactively engaging and serving the diverse populations of coastal communities.
Sea Grant is committed to building inclusive research, extension, communication and education programs that serve people with unique backgrounds, circumstances, needs, perspectives and ways of thinking. We encourage applicants of all ages, races, ethnicities, national origins, gender identities, sexual orientations, disabilities, cultures, religions, marital statuses, education levels, job classifications, veteran status types, and income, and socioeconomic status types to apply for this opportunity.
Closed. Applications are due to North Carolina Sea Grant by 5 p.m. Eastern, on Jan. 27, 2022.
