I took advantage of Thomas’ list to spread the word of 3 graduate position at Cornell University Department of Natural Resources and the Cornell Biological Field Station working with zooplankton-phytoplankton interactions in the deep chlorophyll layer of Lake Ontario, comparative mysid ecology across the Great Lakes, and rehabilitation of endangered native coregonid in Lake Ontario. The two more limnological positions comes supported for 5 years and are most suitable for doctoral students, the coregonid project is supported for 2 years (MSc).

If you have a passion for cleantech, the smarts to play in the emerging green economy, and the desire to leverage your background to make an impact, the UW Environmental Innovation Challenge can provide just the platform (and the funding!) you’ve been looking for.
HOW IT WORKS
Interdisciplinary student teams define a cleantech problem, design and develop a solution, and work together to produce both a prototype (proof of concept or computer simulation) and a 5 to 7-page business summary that outlines the market opportunity.
Potential funding opportunity for talented undergraduates:
Financial Support for Undergraduate Studies in Environmental Sciences is
available from the National Center for Environmental Research, a unit of the
EPA Office of Research and Development, which is seeking applications for
its Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowships For Undergraduate
Environmental Study. This fellowship program forms part of efforts to ensure
that the United States meets its current and projected human resource needs
in the environmental science, engineering, and policy fields.
