Get Involved

There are many ways to be involved in supporting the work to better understand our oceans.

Interested in being a scientific collaborator or a partner site in the network?

Each partner site in the MarineGEO network is a regional catalyst for cooperative research, student training, citizen science, and public engagement, as each can serve as a gateway to parallel activities at other observatories around the globe. Understanding the strength and economy of scale in partnerships, the Smithsonian designed this initiative to build long-term strategic collaborations with scientists, existing research programs, government agencies, universities, NGOs, and national museums.

If you are potentially interested in collaborating or partnering and would like to know more, please email us at:

Interested in fellowship and internship opportunities?

Anyone interested in doing a fellowship or internship with MarineGEO may apply to opportunities offered through the Smithsonian's Office of Internships and Fellowships or through our partner observatories.

Additional information about fellowships and internships at our Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network can be found through each node's website: 

Please note: Beginning in 2019, MarineGEO does not offer postdoctoral fellowships through a separate program.  Prospective applicants should apply through the opportunities listed above.
