The NMFS RTR Program, located at the University of Florida, is holding its
tenth annual Marine Resources Population Dynamics Workshop. This workshop
will introduce fifteen outstanding undergraduate students from around the
country to the field of population dynamics using exciting case studies
involving harvested fish species and protected species (such as sea turtles
or marine mammals). The workshop will take place March 3-9, 2013 at the Keys
Marine Lab in Long Key, Florida. The program will cover all costs for the
students selected to participate. The workshop is designed for students who
have strong math skills and enjoy math, who also have a basic understanding
of ecology. It will be taught by University of Florida faculty and
scientists from the National Marine Fisheries Service. Network with students
from around the country that share your interests and with faculty and
scientists that can help shape your future. Note that 100% of past
participants have recommended this program! For more information and
application materials, please visit <http://www.popdyrtr.com/>

deadline for receipt of applications is October 15, 2012.
The Marine Resources Population Dynamics Summer opportunity for graduate
students and undergraduate seniors is a two-week, all-expense-paid program
that will introduce participants to the population dynamics and complexity
of a critically important, current case study in marine conservation and
fisheries management by meeting the stakeholders, academic and agency
scientists, and policy-makers involved. Participants will meet on the
University of Florida campus and travel to relevant locations in the
southeastern United States. At the conclusion of the program, participants
will present a policy recommendation of their own creation to policymakers.
The workshop is intended for students with strong quantitative interests and
extensive research experience, striving for a career in population dynamics.
