PhD candidates for our Marine Ecosystem Sustainability

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) is seeking motivated PhD candidates for our Marine Ecosystem Sustainability in the Arctic and Subarctic (MESAS) program (http://www.uaf.edu/mesas).


This interdisciplinary NSF-funded IGERT (http://www.igert.org) program incorporates case studies, courses, and seminars to teach the fundamental principles and analytical tools of anthropology, ecology, economics, fisheries science, management, marine policy, and oceanography.  An appreciation of diverse societal objectives recognizes that there are many services that humans derive from marine ecosystems.  New research and frameworks are needed for evaluating the likely effects of alternative management actions and policies. MESAS will broadly train students in ecosystem- based approaches to managing and studying living marine resources in the context of competing local, national, and international interests.

The MESAS program includes an internship with partner organization, mentoring opportunities, and interaction with terrestrial sustainability IGERT at UAF.  Fellowships (available to US citizens or permanent residents seeking PhD degree) include $30K/yr stipend, tuition, health insurance, and research funding.  

We are accepting applicants through 1/31 for Fall 2012 enrollment. Interested students should visit our website for more information (http://www.uaf.edu/mesas) or contact MESAS at Е-мейл адресът e защитен от спам ботове. .
