Oceans span over 70% of the Earth and play critical roles in almost all facets of human well-being. Oceans regulate climate, provide a home for biologically diverse organisms, and feed the world’s growing population. Society faces a grand challenge in understanding natural and human impacts on marine ecosystems to ensure that the oceans continue to provide for generations to come.
To address these challenges, we are recruiting, training, and mentoring an interdisciplinary and diverse cohort of students. We welcome applications from a range of educational, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds and traditions. We uphold the UC Davis Principles of Community and commit to fostering an academic environment that supports the success of all members of our community.
