The 2018 Fellowship competition will prioritize applicants with research interests related to coastal habitats and nature-based infrastructure for coastal protection and ecosystem restoration. While not exclusive, specific areas of research connected to this priority could include:
• Quantifying, mapping, or valuing ecosystem services (e.g., water quality, fisheries, tourism, climate and hazard risk reduction)
• Policy analysis, scenario modeling, or decision-support for coastal planning and practice
QUALIFICATIONS: The CSI-TNC Coastal Sustainability Fellows Program welcomes applicants from all fields of study focused on understanding and pursuing coastal sustainability. All applicants must have earned a doctoral degree in a relevant field of natural science, social science, or engineering between September 1, 2015 and 2018.
FELLOWSHIP DETAILS & APPLICATION PROCESS: The fellowship will provide two years of salary ($60,000 per year) and benefits plus an additional $5,000 each year to support travel for meetings and field research. Fellows will be based at NU’s CSI and Marine Science Center in Nahant, MA, and co-mentored by scientists at CSI and TNC.
