Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Senior
Graduate Students (Masters)

Description:
The University of Florida Water Institute is seeking five doctoral-degree students interested in joining an interdisciplinary team that will work collaboratively to investigate agricultural, biogeochemical, bioengineering and public perception aspects of the beneficial use of reclaimed water (RW) in Florida. Fellowships will provide an annual stipend, tuition waiver and health insurance for 4 years starting fall term.

The Water Institute Graduate Fellows Program offers a unique interdisciplinary graduate training environment focused on integrating research on RW use to promote solutions to global water scarcity that incorporate the needs of agriculture, environmental protection, and society. Fellows will investigate environmental and human health barriers associated with reclaimed water use including elevated nutrient concentrations and pollutants as well as negative public perception for potable uses. The interdisciplinary team will seek to collectively answer the question: How can we address projected water scarcity by overcoming barriers to RW use and expand use of RW in a way that provides the most benefit? Students will develop disciplinary expertise in agricultural sciences, biogeochemistry, bioengineering and geography, and will also be trained in ethical conduct of research, conflict management, grant writing, science communication (via traditional and social media), and other professional development skills.
