Funding Opportunities

Request for Proposals to conduct 20 Year Retrospective Review of American Lobster Research

The New York and Connecticut Sea Grant programs are seeking a consultant to conduct a critical review and synthesis of American lobster natural and socio-economic research from 2002 to the present. Deliverables are 1) a technical white paper and 2) a review paper ready for submission to a peer reviewed journal such as Reviews in Fisheries Science and Aquaculture. The consultant will be expected to provide a critical perspective of the status of the science and share insights and recommendations to help inform future American lobster research and management. This systematic review should address biological, environmental, anthropogenic and socio-economic challenges that have been experienced in this fishery.

The project is to start immediately upon execution of the contract but no later than 7/15/2022. The technical white paper and review paper ready for submission must be completed no later than 7/15/2023.

The amount of (federal) funding available is $15,000.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Climate-Fisheries Modeling 

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) pioneers collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges. Our scientists explore dynamic ocean systems from marine life to environmental conditions to coastal economies. We infuse our discoveries into the policy arena and design solutions with fishermen and seafood businesses to protect fishery resources, harvest them responsibly, and market them as premium quality food. We share our discoveries with the public and nurture a culture of leadership in communities that depend on the sea. Our education programs cultivate science literacy and build a foundation of collaborative problem-solving among our next generation of leaders, scientists, citizens, and stewards. Each year, we serve over 25,000 stakeholders from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is seeking applicants for a 2-year postdoctoral researcher position. The postdoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Kerr and collaborate with a team of scientists at GMRI, Rutgers University, and NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NOAA NEFSC).  The research will involve application of management strategy evaluation to inform marine resource decision-making under projected climate change in the Northeast U.S. shelf ecosystem as well as development of climate-informed stock assessment models.
