Postdoctoral and Graduate Fellowship Program


November 1st of each year.

Scientists at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland conduct environmental research in temperate, tropical, and polar ecosystems across the globe. Recent research has highlighted the separate and interactive impacts of multiple global change factors on populations, communities, and ecosystems, including climate change, biological invasions, biodiversity loss, nutrient loading, trace element pollution, and habitat alteration. Insights gained in these studies will be crucial to developing science-based conservation plans that allow human societies to thrive while protecting our finite natural resources. Topics include the following; Biodiversity & Conservation, Biological Invasions, Ecosystems Ecology, Environmental pollution, Foods Webs, Global Change, Parasite & Disease Ecology, and Watersheds and Land Use.,
