The University of Michigan Water Center announces an exciting opportunity for a master’s student with an interest in environmental water science and policy.
The student fellow will work with partners at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) on a project entitled Assessment of the Effectiveness of Sediment Remediations and Their Ability to Impact Area of Concern Delisting. He/she will assist in compiling environmental data for at least two high priority Areas of Concern (AOCs), where sediment remediation has either occurred and/or is planned, and will have the opportunity to assist with data synthesis and integration, as well as with case study development and workshop planning and implementation.
The Water Center aims to provide U-M students with the chance to work with professional practitioners in advancing the restoration, management, and sustainable use of freshwater ecosystems. Through this experience, the fellow will engage with a broad range of state environmental and natural resource agencies and other Federal agencies such as the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S Fish & Wildlife Service, and USEPA’s Office of Research and Development. The goal is to link the assessment of sediment remediation effectiveness and the case for removing beneficial use impairments.
Additional details including eligibility, stipend, timeline, and application guidelines can be found in the full announcement.
The application period for the student fellow opportunity is now closed. More details to follow upon the fellow announcement.
