Since 2003, the Delta Science Program and the California Sea Grant College Program have sponsored a fellows program for predoctoral students and postdoctoral researchers. The aim of the program is to bring together junior scientists with Delta agency scientists and senior research mentors in collaborative data analysis and research projects relevant to Delta policy and management, including analyses of the immense monitoring database collected and maintained by the implementing agencies. The Delta Science Program is seeking applications from qualified individuals to compete for fellowship opportunities in 2013. California Sea Grant will administer and manage the fellowship program on behalf of the Science Program. Fellowships will be awarded based on the intellectual merit of the application and the expected contribution to the priority issues in implementing the Delta Plan (See Appendix C). The goals of the Delta Science Fellows Program are to: (1) bring highly qualified scientific talent to help advance the state of scientific knowledge on the Delta Plan policy areas. The Delta Plan covers the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Suisun Marsh (Appendix A) and may include areas outside the Delta and Suisun Marsh that affect achievement of the coequal goals including the Delta watershed (Appendix B). (2) provide support for the training and development of scientists able to work in multidisciplinary, field-oriented and modeling-based research intended to support resource management in the Delta; and (3) promote scientific partnerships across agencies, research institutions, and nonprofit organizations. See complete RFA on website.
