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.

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.
This course will examine the theory and practice of water resources management through diverse case studies, directed readings, and research projects. We will consider policies/practices that help ensure sustainable supplies of freshwater for the multiple sectors of human use (domestic, agricultural, industrial, etc.). We will review the core principles of integrated water resources management that emphasize the finite nature of freshwater resources, and the social and economic value of water.
