Pollutants - like pesticides, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nutrients, oil, and metals - are having devastating effects on ecosystems including the plants, animals and people who depend on them. A key component of the Institute for Water and the Environment (InWe), the Center for Aquatic Chemistry and the Environment (CAChE) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Center of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) that tackles one of the most complex challenges: environmental contamination. Our research addresses the sources, transport, transformation and ecosystem responses to contaminants, pollutants and other natural stressors, under changing land-use and environmental conditions.
CREST CAChE Undergraduate Research Fellows Program is currently recruiting multiple graduate student fellows who want hone their skills and experience. Choose your mentor and let us know your interest. Students must be a US citizen or permanent resident to receive a CREST fellowship. Gain hands-on experience working closely with faculty and graduate students in CREST CAChE. Applications are due April 15.
