Coral Reel Management Fellowship Program (July 21, 2015)

(Internship Opportunity)

The National Coral Reef Management Fellowship Program is seeking to build the next generation of coral reef conservation leaders and is supporting two-year positions that strive to address both current capacity gaps, as well as to build longer-term management capacity in the jurisdictions by placing highly qualified individuals whose education and work experience meet each jurisdiction’s specific coral reef management needs.

The partnership is recruiting for seven, 2-year Coral Reef Management Fellowship positions in: U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida, Hawaii, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.

Fellows will begin in January 2016.

Each position has its own distinct work plan, responding to specific needs for increased coral reef management capacity in each coral reef jurisdiction and provides training and professional development opportunities. Fellows will work on issues affecting U.S. coral reef ecosystems including climate change, land-based sources of pollution, and fishing. They will also work to address local needs such as the development of management plans for marine managed areas, stakeholder and public engagement in management programs, climate change adaptation, and the monitoring of coral reef ecosystems.

Deadline for application is July 31, 2015.

Qualified candidates meeting stated educational requirements with relevant working experience are encouraged to apply. Applicants need to have completed posted educational requirements by December 2015. Multiple applications will be accepted.
