The city of Natal, where Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) is, lies on Brazil’s northeast coast with its rich and diverse marine life, a perfect place for this opportunity.
UFRN expects to collaborate with U.S. scholars on themes related to how the ocean and marine life deal with synergistic impacts of global climate change and local-scale stressors.
If you are a Brazilian scholar who would like to host a U.S. colleague in your institution, feel free to direct your questions to the Fulbright Commission.

The state of Rio Grande do Norte has an exuberant coast with dunes, mangroves, beach rocks, and several reefs along a rich continental shelf. In addition to its beauty, this coastline offers valuable and diverse research opportunities for Marine Biology and Oceanography scholars. In addition to an astonishing ocean view, the Department of Oceanography and Limnology offers a diverse structure for experiments which opens many opportunities. There is still a lot to be unraveled on this beautiful coast!
Juliana Dias, Ph.D. Department of Oceanography and Limnology, UFRN
The ocean started to be part of my daily life when I took on my position at UFRN. I have come from a freshwater background, and I began to include marine environments in my research interests, looking for patterns that also emerge in freshwater. The Department of Oceanography and Limnology structure and the motivated undergraduate and graduate students at UFRN have been critical components in these comparative approaches.
