The Ecotoxicology Program has hosted numerous graduate students over the past decade, from research universities throughout the United States and from other countries. Several Ecotox scientists have served on graduate student thesis and dissertation committees, often as affiliate faculty. In all cases, students have a primary graduate advisor at their home institution and work with Center staff in the capacity of a visiting scientist. The depth of past collaborations has ranged from a single project to an entire dissertation. Some students have obtained independent graduate research funding - e.g., the
Environmental Protection Agency's Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Fellowships for Graduate Study
, while others have been supported by NOAA in years where funding has been available. Students who are currently National Science Foundations Graduate Research Fellows should
Graduate Research Internship Program (GRIP) opportunities at NOAA
. Graduate students interested in any of the Ecotox research areas should contact the designated Program Contact for that area.
