The Center for Chemical Currencies of a Microbial Planet (C-CoMP) Bridge-to-PhD program supports the transition of post-baccalaureate students into ocean science graduate programs. Each year, 4-5 new B2P fellows will be placed in C-CoMP research groups. The 2-year, paid fellowship program will provide sufficient time for students to establish core competencies in their relevant fields while benefiting from tailored mentoring and professional development. Fellows will be chosen through an application process that prioritizes applicants from backgrounds traditionally excluded from the sciences. They will be placed in science disciplines ranging from marine chemistry to microbial ecology to data science by matching student interest with C-CoMP faculty, and their research experiences will be aligned with science objectives of the Center. Through virtual platforms, B2P Fellows will engage in peer mentoring and professional development, including: (1) fellowship and proposal writing, (2) ethics in research, and (3) science communication. Fellows will engage in C-CoMP outreach/education activities, participate in the C-CoMP annual meeting, travel to national meetings, and attend a week-long capstone experience at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Science (BIOS). Applications will be accepted until May 30, 2022, and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
