The CREST CAChE undergraduate research fellows program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain first-hand research experience working with faculty and graduate students associated with the CAChE project. In addition, CAChE Fellows will be enrolled in the CREST Research Internship (for zero credit at no cost) so they can list their research experience on their resume. Fellows can perform research during the academic year or during the summer session. See here for more info!
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, Maryland seeks proposals from highly qualified graduate students interested in conducting team-based socio-environmental synthesis research (i.e. “Graduate Pursuits"). Socio-environmental synthesis focuses on understanding connections between social and biophysical systems and emphasizes the importance of understanding them from a systems perspective. Applications are due May 26, 2017. More information can be found here!
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the effects of stream restoration on removal of nutrients and suspended sediments from stream water. The restoration approach, Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC), involves filling deeply eroded stream channels with a mixture of sand and organic matter and placing rock weirs across the stream channel at intervals to create a series of pools.

REU Experience for Undergraduates with the Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Netw
The Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network (UREx SRN) is pleased to announce six opportunities for undergraduate students to participate this summer in interdisciplinary research associated with urban infrastructure resilience and community vulnerability in the face of extreme weather-related events. UREx SRN aims to generate knowledge and promote actions that will ensure urban resiliency. See here for more information.
The Coastal Wetlands Group explores how interactions between biological, anthropogenic, and geomorphic processes influence the formation and survival of coastal landscapes. The desired field manager will coordinate field, lab, and/or modeling efforts, and also work on their own independent research. Depending on the applicant’s background, this could be either a field intensive or a modeling intensive position. More info here.
This program is designed to support research, education/outreach, and/or conservation projects related to the Florida Coral Reef ecosystem. The primary focus will be on restoration projects that significantly enhance capabilities of coral reef ecosystem resource managers, to more effectively utilize science-based information in promoting/implementing the restoration and long-term sustainability of these ecosystems in an increasingly-acidic and high-temperature marine environment.
Qualified students will learn about the Everglades ecosystem, history, water management issues, and policies related to restoration. Interns will go on site visits to major restoration sites, water management structures, and effected natural areas. They will grow their professional networks while meeting with scientists, stakeholders, and policy makers who are participating in the most comprehensive restoration project in the world. More info here.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, molecular biology, biology education, or related field. Preferred applicants will have experience with biology education research, technology-driven interactive teaching, student assessment, multivariate statistical analyses, concept maps, and/or simulation software tools. Successful candidates must have excellent oral and written communication skills and be able to work independently as well as collaboratively with the project leaders and faculty.
Environment for the Americas work to create a diverse workstaff at some of our nation's most spectacular National Parks across the by providing internships at National Parks, Monuments, and Historic Sites across the U.S. and territories. This internship program is designed to provide unique experiences to underserved youth who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees or who have recently graduated.
Applications are invited for this project which examines how changes in land cover, land management and climate over the last millennium affect carbon transfer from terrestrial systems to the coastal ocean. The project involves palaeoecological and modelling skills, with good opportunities to engage with policy-makers. See here fore more information.
