The Plant Ecology and Remote Sensing Lab in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia is seeking one Ph.D. student who is interested in studying the climate-vegetation interactions from leaf to global scales. We have projects using field observations, controlled experiments, and satellite remote sensing to understand the vegetation photosynthetic response to various environmental variables using a novel metric – solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence. We also use drone-based and airborne-based remote sensing with fluorescence, hyperspectral and thermal remote sensing in combination with eddy covariance measurements to understand key questions in ecosystem carbon and water cycling. We also welcome students who are interested in studying land surface processes using models such as the Community Land Model. 

 

Students’ research projects are flexible and depend on their interests. Highly-motivated students with a background in remote sensing, ecosystem ecology, ecophysiology, or land surface modeling would be strong fits. Interested students should send a CV with GPA, GRE, and TOEFL (if applicable), and a brief statement of research interests to Dr. Xi Yang (xiyang@virginia.edu). Please email with the title “UVa Ph.D. Program [Your name]”. The application deadline for the Department of Environmental Sciences is January 15th, 2019.
