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. Pollutants - like pesticides, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nutrients, oil, and metals - are having devastating effects on ecosystems and the plants, animals and humans who depend on them.
We are currently recruiting for multiple graduate student fellows to join CREST who want hone their skills and experience. Check out the mentors in our Research & Training section. Choose your mentor and let us know your interest. Students must be a US citizen or permanent resident to receive a CREST fellowship.
