Information for Prospective Students and Postdocs
For prospective students:
The Division of Coastal Sciences offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Additional information on the graduate programs can be found here. Students in these programs are typically funded on research grants (research assistantships), external fellowships, or departmental fellowships (see below). Specific assistantantship opportunities will be posted here when available, although I encourage interested students to contact me at any time to discuss potential opportunities. If a grant-funded assistantship is not available, students will be encouraged to apply for an external fellowship (e.g., NSF Graduate Research Fellowships). Interested applicants should contact me well in advance of the application deadlines.
Coastal Sciences Graduate Fellowship in Support of Diversity: The Division of Coastal Sciences of the University of Southern Mississippi School of Ocean Science and Engineering is pleased to announce the availability of graduate fellowships in support of diversity to prospective students seeking a M.S. or Ph.D. degree. These fellowships are awarded competitively and are intended to support the recruitment of graduate students from historically underrepresented groups in coastal and marine science who demonstrate scholarly promise. Candidates must contact potential faculty advisors in the Division of Coastal Sciences to discuss their research and educational interests and must identify a faculty sponsor prior to submitting a fellowship application. Mississippi residents who fall under historically underrepresented groups in coastal and marine science are particularly encouraged to apply. For more information, click here.
