EPA Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Modeling Fellowship
Location: Silver Spring
Posted on: November 22, 2021
Do you have educational experience and an interest in water
quality modeling in the field of coastal estuarine systems.
The Chesapeake Bay Program Office (CBPO) of U.S. EPA Region 3 is
seeking a participant to conduct research research on the
Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Model. Under the guidance of a mentor,
the participant will conduct research and have access to a world
class team of model practitioners in the Chesapeake Bay Program who
are contributing to ongoing projects involving the development and
application of numeric models to support the historic Chesapeake
Bay TMDL with technical support needed to restore and maintain
Chesapeake living resources from challenges of climate change,
growth, and other impacts.
The research includes the state-of-the-art simulation of water
quality processes in the water column, sediment, shallow water,
shoreline processes, and ecological processes in support of
Chesapeake Bay Program management needs. Model development
activities will be development of the next-generation Chesapeake
Bay model to assess Chesapeake Bay water and ecosystem quality
using an unstructured grid model such as SCHISM, FVCOM, or other
unstructured grid models.
Annual stipend up to $60,000 commensurate with educational level
Evidence of strong quantitative skills.
Evidence of experience in using numerical models for ocean and
Evidence of broad knowledge of coastal and estuarine systems.
Master's Degree or Doctoral Degree received within the last 60
months or anticipated to be received by 12/18/2020
