MarineGEO seeks to:
- Transform our understanding of biological and ecological processes in marine ecosystems, including forces of change and consequences for society, through application of integrative, multidisciplinary approaches across space and time.
- Provide the science needed to improve ocean health (e.g., resilience and sustainability).
Two cornerstones of MarineGEO are:
- the use of standardized, repeated, long-term research
- coordinated experiments conducted across the Smithsonian’s facilities and an expanding global network of diverse partners.
This approach is designed:
- to achieve rigorous comparative understanding across space and time
- to understand variation in coastal marine ecosystems
- to assess links between local and global environmental forcing, biodiversity, and functioning of ecosystems.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. before commencing the fellowship.
- Proposals must focus on comparative research that directly addresses MarineGEO goals and questions about overarching research themes listed above.
- Projects must involve at least two Smithsonian TMON facilities.
- Projects should be scoped to a level that the fellow can accomplish alone or with limited assistance.
- If field assistance is required (e.g., for diving), proposals should include estimates of those needs.
- Individuals who have been employees at the Smithsonian within the previous year are not eligible.
