COOPERATIVE TRAINING PARTNERSHIP IN AQUATIC TOXICOLOGY AND ECOLOGY RESEARCH
EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) seeks to support a Research Training Program for college and university students. The subject of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to support the research training of college and university students and postdoctoral researchers in Aquatic Toxicology and Ecology Research. The Research Training Program will substantially benefit future environmental scientists and technicians. The goal of the Research Training Program is to increase the effectiveness and number of future environmental scientists and technicians by allowing trainees to collaborate with EPA-ORD scientists while conducting projects in a fully operational federal research laboratory. The overall goal is to train the next generation of environmental scientists and engineers to further the Agency’s mission to manage chemical risks and protect America's water. The training projects will be conducted at EPA’s facilities in Duluth, Minnesota. Some examples of the fields of study for desirable trainees include (but are not limited to) those majoring in biology, chemistry, computer science, ecology, economics, engineering, environmental science, physical science, social science, toxicology, and water policy.
