Student applications were due by January 25, 2023, 5 p.m. local time to the State Sea Grant Program.
There are two different concentrations within this Federal Funding Opportunity (NOAA-OAR-SG-2023-2007709).
Concentration in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics
The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics expects to award at least four new Ph.D. Fellowships in 2023 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. Fellows will work under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices.
Concentration in Marine Resource Economics
The 2023 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics expects to award one new Ph.D. Fellowship 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. This fellowship can provide support for up to three years. Fellows will work under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices.
