Subject: Seeking postdoctoral and post-Masters applicants for the J. Philip
Keillor Wisconsin Coastal Management-Sea Grant Fellow

Dear Colleagues,

Please help us spread the word!

The Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program and the Wisconsin Coastal
Management Program seek postdoctoral and post Masters candidates interested
in tackling science and policy challenges related to increasing coastal
community resilience across the Great Lakes region. Together, these
programs will fund this first ever state Science-Policy Fellow position, named
in honor of a longtime Sea Grant coastal engineering expert Phil Keillor,
to celebrate his legacy in building resilience in Wisconsin communities. The
Fellow will work closely with Wisconsin Coastal Management Program’s
Natural Hazards Work Group, Sea Grant’s coastal engineer, local government
representatives, and researchers from a variety of fields to tackle the
important challenge of connecting science related to coastal processes with
communities that could benefit from the information. There is some
flexibility in the specific questions and approaches that the Fellow will
tackle and employ, and we seek applicants from a variety of backgrounds
including engineering, geology, meteorology, social sciences, ecological
modeling, limnology, etc. This Fellow will be stationed in downtown
Madison with
the Coastal Management Program at the Wisconsin Department of
Administration, and will be working with researchers from across the state,
region and country, in addition to stakeholders and policy-makers in

This Fellow position will provide a unique educational and career
opportunity for a recent graduate who is interested both in aquatic
resources and in the policy decisions affecting those resources in
Wisconsin. This program places a recent master’s or doctoral graduate
within a state agency full-time for one year, with the Fellow bringing
technical skills to benefit water issues and challenges and receiving
valuable real-world science-policy experience from the resource
professionals who will serve as mentors. These mutually beneficial
partnerships will result in advancing science to support policy decisions
as well as valuable training opportunities for new professionals entering
the work force.

*Deadline is May 10, 2016.  *

More detail on the fellowship is attached. If you have any questions,
