South Atlantic Reef Fish Extension Communication Fellowship

The 2024 South Atlantic Reef Fish Extension/Communication Fellowship provides on-the-job education and training opportunities in reef fish extension and communication for an early-career professional in the southeast region.

For this fellowship, we define reef fish as those species that comprise the snapper-grouper complex under management of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council.

Based in the Charleston area, the fellow will work under the advisement and supervision of Sea Grant fisheries extension specialists and SAFMC staff. This one-year opportunity offers a competitive stipend ($50,000), work-related travel expense reimbursement, and an opportunity for engagement in extension programming and communication. The fellowship can be extended to the end of the project (approximately August 2025) with suitable performance as determined by the supervisor and project team.

In particular, the fellow will work on projects that advance stakeholder understanding of reef fish issues and management, including advances in research as they relate to red snapper, greater amberjack, and other managed reef fish species.

Deadline: March 22, 2024
