The National Coral Reef Management Fellowship Program is a partnership
between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coral Reef
Conservation Program, U.S. Department of Interior’s Office of Insular
Affairs, the U.S. All Islands Coral Reef Committee and the National
Coral Reef Institute. The program seeks to build the next generation of
coral reef conservation leaders and supports two-year positions that
strive to address both current capacity gaps, as well as to build
longer-term management capacity in the jurisdictionsby placing highly
qualified individuals whose education and work experience meet each
jurisdiction’s specific coral reef management needs.
The partnership is recruiting for seven Coral Reef Management Fellowship
positions: U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida, Hawaii, the
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and American Samoa,
for two-year positions beginning 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.
