Oregon Sea Grant serves the state, region and nation through integrated research, education and public engagement on ocean and coastal issues.
We apply the best available science to timely and important marine issues, and engage with coastal stakeholders to help them reach informed decisions. We support scientific excellence and innovation, foster new generations of marine scientists and encourage ocean science literacy among people of all ages.
Based at Oregon State University, we're part of the national network of NOAA Sea Grant College Programs, dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship, long-term economic development and responsible use of America’s coastal, ocean and Great Lakes resources.
NOTICE: Because the OSU campus is closed Dec. 9 due to bad weather, candidate interviews scheduled for Dec. 9-10 have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for later dates.
