The Oregon Sea Grant (OSG) College Program is soliciting applications for the 2021-22 Oregon Sea Grant/Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (OAH) Fellowship. This fellowship position will support DEQ’s activities related to Oregon’s Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia policy, particularly focusing on collaboration with other federal and state agencies and academia by assisting with the convening and facilitation of a scientific technical workgroup. This workgroup’s charge will be to define and develop scientifically-supported methodologies for assessing OAH impacts in marine territorial waters that can be used to carry out water quality assessments within DEQ’s Clean Water Act assessment program. The OAH Fellowship will place one fellow with an anticipated start-date of November 15, 2021. This is a full time, one-year opportunity with the possibility for extension. This position is based in Portland or Salem, OR (both remote and in-office working are possibilities depending on the State and DEQ’s policy at the time of the fellowship). The full-time fellowship position description is included at the end of this document.

Award and Eligibility

The length of assignment is one year with the possibility for extension. The fellowship will pay up to $42,000 for the year, in monthly stipend payments. The stipend will provide you with up to $3,500 per month to cover expenses during your full-time fellowship, which may include fellowship-related professional development, educational supplies, health insurance, and travel expenses. Open to individuals that are pursuing or have recently completed a post-graduate degree (Masters, PhD, or other related professional degrees) from any university or college (US or international) with interest and experience in coastal policy. Preference will be given to those who will have completed their degree by the start of the fellowship. The 2021-2022 OAH Fellowship Request for Applications (RFA) provides additional details.

Oregon Sea Grant Scholars- Special Opportunities

The Oregon Sea Grant Scholars Program has focused on broadening participation and diversity by restructuring our recruitment and review processes to make them more equitable. Our intent is to be more inclusive of applicants from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds with unique lived experiences, skills and interests; including applicants that may have had fewer opportunities in the marine policy field. In line with this initiative, applicants will have the opportunity to demonstrate how their experience with diverse stakeholder groups and communities might apply to this fellowship, and how they think this fellowship will advance their long-term career goals.
