Description

CASE FELLOWSHIP ON THE EMERGING CONTAMINANTS/PFAS PROJECT
AT THE CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

The Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering (CASE) is accepting applications for a Two-Year Science and Technology Policy Fellowship for the Emerging Contaminants/PFAS Project at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), Hartford, Connecticut, to begin between November 2018 and January 2019.

Eligible candidates must have a PhD or equivalent terminal degree — or for engineers, a masters in engineering with three years of professional experience — in an environmental science-related discipline or public health with a focus on environmental toxicology. PhD candidates will be considered if completion of their PhD is imminent.

This is an opportunity for a scientist/engineer to engage at the nexus of research and policy on a significant environmental and public health issue — emerging contaminants/per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 3, 2018 at 5:00 pm EDT
*MIDPOINT REVIEW: Applications received by Oct. 15, 2018, will be reviewed by the CASE Fellowship Selection Committee. If a Fellow is selected from this pool of applicants, the CALL FOR APPLICATIONS will be closed prior to the Dec. 3, 2018 Deadline.

understanding of how science informs policymaking, enhancing their career as researchers, professors, consultants, and
leaders.

CASE seeks to identify a diverse pool of candidates, including broad representation from individuals at different career
stages, gender, age, race/ethnicity, physical ability, geographic location, and institutional affiliation.
