January

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.

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.

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. More information here.
