Sea Grant Fellow

The Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program and the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program seek postdoctoral and post-master’s candidates interested in tackling science and policy challenges related to increasing coastal community resilience across the Great Lakes region. Together, these programs will fund J. Philip Keillor Wisconsin Coastal Management-Sea Grant 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. Some specific priorities include:

  • Continue the UW Sea Grant update efforts on the Coastal Processes Manual (3rd Ed)
  • Assist with a NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant project as opportunities arise, including creating education materials on resilient coastal practices, participating in community engagement activities, and developing web-based resilience resources.
  • Assist Fellow partners with extension opportunities associated with building resilience in Wisconsin communities
  • Pursue relevant coastal hazards and resilience opportunities with other local, state, and regional Great Lakes entities as they arise, including coordination with Illinois and Indiana programs and participation in the Great Lakes Chapter of the American Beach and Shore Preservation Association

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 Wisconsin. The position requires occasional travel, including overnight stays.  Annual stipends are dependent on the Fellow’s academic background, with post master’s Fellows earning $40,000 and postdoctoral Fellows earning $55,000, both with additional benefits (see –
