The Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region (CINAR) announces a competition for a Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). CINAR is a cooperative institute between NOAA and a consortium of academic partners (Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Rutgers University, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and University of Maine, and WHOI).
The Fisheries and the Environment (FATE) Program requests research proposals for funding in FY2013 under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Fisheries Oceanography program. FATE is a research program that develops and evaluates ecological and oceanographic indices to improve stock assessments, to improve ecosystem assessments, and to advance ecosystem-based approaches to fisheries management. Background material on the FATE program can be found on the FATE web site: fate.nmfs.noaa.gov. The FATE Steering Committee seeks proposals that analyze the response of living marine resources to environmental variability and change. This includes the development of ecosystem indicators, construction of new forecasting models, synthesis or reevaluation of previously defined FATE or other fishery/ecosystem indicators, and development of techniques to incorporate ecosystem indicators into NMFS stock and ecosystem assessments
