You can learn more about our investments team and portfolio on our website. To apply, please send an email to investments@masscec.com with a resume and description of your interest and eligibility. The time commitment per week is flexible depending on your schedule. We will structure the internship to provide academic credit through your academic institution.


Frontiers in Groundwater Irrigation

Thursday, April 6th, 12-2pm @ Building 1, Room 242

With erratic rainfall patterns, more frequent drought occurrences, and the poor management and distribution of water in large publicly owned irrigation systems, farmers are drilling their own deep tubewells or shallow boreholes, and relying more on groundwater for irrigation. There is little information on aquifer characteristics and recharge rates, as well as inadequate ground water monitoring programs.  Unsustainable groundwater pumping and aquifer depletion have already jeopardized irrigated agriculture in many irrigated regions such as the Indo-Gangetic Plain, the High Aquifer Plains of the US, and the North China Plains. The seminar will discuss some of the remedial technical and institutional measures being put in place to make better use of limited ground water resources for food security.
