OSG, ODFW offer two new fellowships

Postgraduate students in fisheries and related fields are eligible to apply for two new natural resources fellowships that will give them a year of on-the-ground work in resource conservation and management.

The fellowships, part of the Sea Grant Scholars program are a collaborative effort between Oregon Sea Grant and the Oregon Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. They are open to any PhD. or Masters level graduating student or recent graduate who will have completed a degree in marine ecology, zoology, fisheries, resource management, or related fields by the time the fellowships start.

The purpose is to provide two postgraduates with one year each of technical work experience and training while contributing to ODFW mission to protect and enhance Oregon’s fish and wildlife and their habitats for use and enjoyment by present and future generations.

Both fellows will be based at ODFW’s office in Newport, OR. One will concentrate on historical rockfish catch in Oregon’s commercial and sport fisheries; the other will work on a quantitative description of bottom-dwelling invertebrates in Oregon’s rocky nearshore zone.
