Other Opportunities


Delta Science Fellowship
Application Deadline: Dec 20, 2019
The Delta Science Fellows Program (previously known as the CALFED Science Fellows Program) was established to bring together graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with Bay-Delta agency scientists and senior research mentors. Fellows work on collaborative data analysis and research projects applicable to the California Bay-Delta system. The goal of funding this research is to invest in knowledge that will fundamentally advance the understanding of the complex environments and systems within the Bay-Delta system to aid policy-makers and managers, and to train the next generation of research scientists for water issues in California. California Sea Grant administers and manages the fellowship program on behalf of the Delta Stewardship Council - Delta Science Program. More info here.
