The NOAA Office for Coastal Management is recruiting candidates for the 2020 Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program. This program's mission is 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 agencies and other key NOAA partners. The nine fellowship positions start in August 2020 and are available with the California State Coastal Conservancy, the coastal programs in Delaware, Guam, Maryland, Texas, and U.S. Virgin Islands, and three of our Digital Coast partners, including the Association of State Floodplain Managers (in partnership with the Coastal States Organization), the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association, and The Nature Conservancy. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at coast.noaa.gov/fellowship.
For the 2020 fellowship, applicants must complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2019, and July 31, 2020, to be eligible. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are varied among the host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement. Application packages must be submitted to the Sea Grant office in the state where you received your degree by Friday, January 17, 2020.
