The fellows will also be encouraged to pursue their own environmental research interests and to present their research through public-facing platforms, including regular updates to our website. Position requires experience working on agricultural projects, schedule flexibility, and ability to work on a team. Must be available during the summer June 1- September 30. Please feel free to inquire about the details of these fellowships at anytime throughout the academic year.
