Digital Coast Fellowship Opportunities

NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management is recruiting candidates for three Digital Coast Fellowship opportunities in 2016.  This program is modeled after the Coastal Management fellowship program and has a similar mission: to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to Digital Coast Partnership organizations. The fellowship positions start in August 2016 and are available with: the Association of State Floodplain Managers in Madison, Wisconsin; the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association in Wells, Maine; and The Nature Conservancy in Seattle, Washington. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at coast.noaa.gov/fellowship/digitalcoast.html.

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 projects are varied among the partner organizations. This two-year opportunity starts in August 2016, and offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.

Application packages must be submitted to the NOAA Office for Coastal Management by Friday, May 6, 2016, at ocm.fellowships@noaa.gov.
