A research training opportunity is available at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), Center for Public Health and Environmental Assessment (CPHEA), Pacific Ecological Systems Division (PESD) in Corvallis, Oregon. This project is part of a larger agency-wide effort to improve the capacity to evaluate environmental protection policies and to estimate economic benefits associated with the protection of water and other aquatic resources. The research participant will have the opportunity to collaborate closely with principal investigators within the ORD/PESD laboratory in Corvallis, Oregon and with colleagues at the National Center for Environmental Economics and the Office of Water in Washington, D.C. to assist in the development of a nonmarket valuation study focused on estimating the effect of water quality on several housing markets across the country.
