Undergraduate Research Internship Opportunities

Mook Sea Farm & SEANET

Two ocean acidification-related undergraduate research internship opportunities are avaiable this summer at Mook Sea Farm in Walpole, ME supported by SEANET.  These opportunities are open to undergraduate students from or attending university in Maine.

The Aquaculture in changing waters: Impacts of ocean acidification on juvenile oysters opportunity is directly related to ocean acidification and the aquaculture industry.  The second internship, Environmental influence on larval bivalve settlement success, will consider the effects of several environmental variables, including pCO2, pH, and saturation state, on larval bivalve settlement in a field study.

Applications will be reviewed beginning February 18. 2019. Please direct questions to me, Meredith White, meredith.megan.white@gmail.com.

2019 Request for Proposals

Washington Sea Grant

Washington Sea Grant (WSG) requests proposals for one- to-two-year projects from investigators at academic, research and education institutions throughout the state of Washington. Funded projects will contribute to WSG and state priority information needs by advancing knowledge in one of four focus areas: healthy coastal ecosystems; sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; resilient communities and economies; and ocean literacy and workforce development.
 
About $2 million will be awarded during the two-year funding cycle through a competitive review process.
 
Proposals must follow the guidelines detailed in the 2019 Request for Proposals and be submitted through eSeaGrant, WSG’s online proposal submission system. Note: eSeaGrant will open for investigators to start a preliminary proposal on January 28, 2019.

Federal Funding Opportuntity: Domestic Coral Reef Conservation Grant Competition

NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program

This competitive program provides funding via grants or cooperative agreements to institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, and local and Indian tribal government agencies to support coral reef conservation projects in the United States, as authorized under the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000 (16 U.S.C. §§ 6401-6409).

These awards are intended to support coral reef conservation projects in shallow water coral reef ecosystems, including reefs at mesophotic depths, in American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Florida, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and coral-dominated banks in U.S. portions of the Gulf of Mexico. Applicants may propose projects in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and the U.S. Pacific Remote Islands, but the Coral Reef Conservation Program does not consider these locations as priorities under this announcement.

Priorities fall within five major categories: 1) Improve Fisheries Sustainability; 2) Reduce Land-Based Sources of Pollution; 3) Increase Resilience to Climate Change; 4) Restore Viable Coral Populations; and 5) Local and Emerging Management Needs. These categories are described in more detail in the full Federal Funding Opportunity announcement. Applications should address CRCP’s national priorities or the jurisdictional priorities as described in the five categories. 

Applicants should submit complete applications via www.grants.gov by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on January 29, 2019.

Federal Funding Opportunity: Regional Ocean Acidification Observing Optimization Study

NOAA OCEAN ACIDIFICATION PROGRAM

The NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting proposals for studies investigating ocean acidification monitoring strategies that would offer an observing system design that best characterizes and tracks ocean acidification within U.S. Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) optimized towards characterizing the conditions most relevant to ecologically and economically important marine species.

Letters of intent due February 5th, 2019 (EXTENDED Deadline)
