  • Transportation options and programs

Fellows will also work on:

  • Transportation data analysis
  • Supporting active transportation planning and transportation demand management strategies
  • Researching drought and climate change impacts on water use
  • Developing electric vehicle strategies for utilities and emergency operations

Full position descriptions can be found here for Public Works and here for Department of Utilities.

Fellows will receive a living allowance, health insurance, childcare assistance and other benefits.
