Water Law & Policy Fellow

Center for Law, Energy and the Environment, UC Berkeley

The Wheeler Water Institute, a research and policy institute within the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment (CLEE) at UC Berkeley School of Law, is seeking to hire a Research Fellow in water law and policy.

Building on UC Berkeley’s history of and commitment to research and public service and leading environmental law program, CLEE leverages the intellectual resources of Berkeley Law faculty and students in furtherance of applied research in a variety of environmental and energy law and policy areas. Within this matrix, the Wheeler Water Institute develops interdisciplinary solutions to ensure clean water for California’s future.

The Research Fellow will work on a variety of water resources issues. Specific research areas will depend on the fellow’s background and interests, but will likely include: sustainable groundwater management; groundwater recharge; innovation in the water sector; water data and decision-making; and/or other water management and policy issues. An overarching emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, including engagement with scientists and engineers, will be central to these projects. The fellow may also work on other water and/or other related initiatives within Wheeler and CLEE more generally, depending on program needs throughout the duration of the fellowship. The fellow must be willing to travel occasionally within California.

The anticipated start date is July 1, 2017. This is a 100%, one-year term contract position, with the possibility of renewal for a second year contingent upon funding.
