1.   Embassy Amman has reviewed the three candidates for the 
  Embassy Science Fellow Program that were forwarded to us by 
  OES and has chosen Dr. Sylvana Li of the USDA/FAS as our 
  first choice.  Dr. Li's background suits her well to the 
  job.  Not only is her expertise in water quality and 
  resource management, she is already working with the USGS 
  and EPA to showcase the latest technologies in wastewater 
  reuse in agriculture.  Dr. Li also plans to use the contacts 
  she makes this summer in Amman to develop future projects 
  involving Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinians, advancing 
  our regional environment agenda. 
 
2.   We understand that Dr. Li would be available to work at 
  Embassy Amman for the month of August.  During her 
  fellowship she will be working with the Ministries of Water 
  and Agriculture, offering expertise and technical advice on 
  water quality issues for agricultural applications. 
 
3.   Post has identified housing from the embassy housing 
  pool to accommodate Dr. Li.  Dr. Li will be given an office 
  in which she will have a telephone and computer with email 
  access. 
 
4.   Complying with the provisions of the Embassy Science 
  Fellow program (ref A), post will offer Dr. Li access to 
  post medical services, CLO, APO, check cashing, and the 
  commissary/recreational association, during her official 
  stay in Amman. 
 
5.   Post point of contact for Dr. Li is Regional 
  Environment Officer Paul Malik, who can be reached by phone 
  at 962-6-592-0101 ext 2621, or via email at 
  malikp(at)state.gov 
 
6.   Post looks forward to welcoming Dr. Li to Amman later 
  this summer.
