The University of Southern California Sea Grant Program is now seeking applications for the 2014 National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS)-Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Programs in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics. These are national competitions, and applicants should contact the Sea Grant program in their state (or closest to them). California applicants may apply through either the California Sea Grant Program in La Jolla, or through the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program in Los Angeles.
This Fellowship is available to US citizens who are graduate students enrolled in PhD degree programs in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. Sea Grant and NMFS, with required institutional matching funds, expect to support at least two new Fellows in both Population Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics in FY 2014. These Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS at participating NMFS Science Centers or Laboratories under the guidance of NMFS mentors. The Fellows are students who are interested in careers related to the population dynamics of living marine resources and 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.
Details on how to apply are below.
