NOAA COASTAL MANAGEMENT FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM: Six (6) Temporary, Full-time Positions.
Location: NOAA, See below for locations.
Qual: For the 2016 fellowship, applicants must complete a master’s, doctoral, or professional degree at an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2015, and July 31, 2016, to be eligible. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the state projects are new and different each year. Previous fellows have had degrees in environmental studies, natural resource management, marine affairs, marine science, geology, public affairs, and regional land management. The most important prerequisite is an interest in state-level coastal issues.
Duties: The NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship Program is now recruiting candidates for the 2016- 2018 fellowship program. This program was established in 1996 to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to state coastal zone management programs. The program matches postgraduate students with state coastal zone programs to work on projects proposed by the state and selected by the fellowship sponsor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement. The fellowship positions start in August 2016 and are available at the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, the California Coastal Commission, and the coastal zone management programs in New York, North Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the state projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at https://coast.noaa.gov/fellowship/process.html.
