Competition for the 2014 NMFS - Sea Grant Graduate Fellowships in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics (formerly Population Dynamics) and in Marine Resource Economics is now open.

The NMFS - Sea Grant Joint Graduate 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. In FY 2014, Sea Grant and NMFS will jointly support Fisheries Fellows in two research areas: Population Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics. Fisheries Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS, with a summer internship at participating NMFS Science Centers or Laboratories. Fellows operate under the guidance of a NMFS mentor.
