Research Traineeship (NRT) program “Sustainable Oceans: From Policy to Science to Decisions”

Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Description:
UC Davis received a $3M award from the National Science Foundation in support of a new Research Traineeship (NRT) program “Sustainable Oceans: From Policy to Science to Decisions”. Our Sustainable Oceans NRT will train the next generation of PhD marine scientists under a new paradigm that puts the policy focus on the front-end of the research and training enterprise as a means of building more effective links between the science and decisions on sustainable use of living marine resources.

The basis of the new interdisciplinary paradigm is combining traditional graduate training in core disciplines and interdisciplinary courses on marine science and policy with immersion into the policy process and politics surrounding ecosystem-based fishery management.

The first cohort of trainees will start in the fall of 2018. Over 5 years, we anticipate training 60 PhD students, including 30 funded trainees, from the fields of ecology, conservation biology, economics, geology, physiology, biogeochemistry, and oceanography.
