Call for applications: aquatic biology fellowship

Graduate students in water resources, aquatic biology and limnology invited to apply for a 2014 Moos Graduate Research Fellowship in Aquatic Biology.

In 2014, this program will provide summer stipends (3-months salary/fringe) plus up to $2,500 in travel and research expenses to two graduate students currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Students must be pursuing an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in the topics of water resources, aquatic biology or limnology. The research proposed must concern questions of general or regional significance. This fellowship will enable the recipient to undertake unique research activities focused on understanding and developing sustainable use of freshwater. Each proposal must also include an outreach component that identifies how the findings will be disseminated to the general public.

Applications will be judged on the quality and creativity of the proposed research. Finalists will be invited for in-person interviews to be conducted during the week of April 21, 2014 and final selections will be made shortly thereafter. The two recipients may be required to present their findings at a suitable meeting of the Board of Directors of the Freshwater Society.

Deadline: Noon, April 9, 2014 (firm). To apply, students should send a single pdf with all parts of their proposal and arrange for their adviser to email a letter of support (see below) to:
