Ph.D. Assistantship in Modeling Forest and Water Resources under Changing Conditions at NC State
The Watershed Ecology lab group at North Carolina State University seeks a creative, motivated Ph.D. student interested in projections of future landscape conditions created by combining data sources, which could include remote sensing, ecosystem models (i.e., LANDIS or RHESSys), models of land use change (i.e., FUTURES) and beyond. The position will begin Fall 2019 and is funded for four years at $25,000/year, plus benefits and tuition support, through the cutting-edge Ph.D. program in Geospatial Analytics offered by NC State’s Center for Geospatial Analytics (geospatial.ncsu.edu). The student will be encouraged to develop research questions and a project tailored to their unique interests and career goals.
The Center for Geospatial Analytics is an internationally recognized collaborative hub for interdisciplinary data scientists advancing novel understanding of spatial phenomena and applying new knowledge to grand challenges. Students in the Ph.D. program receive multidisciplinary advising and the opportunity to work with more than twenty faculty fellows with diverse expertise from nearly a dozen departments across NC State. Students also engage in experiential learning through an off-campus professional internship.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply, complete the application at grad.ncsu.edu/apply. Applicants should hold a degree in ecology, forestry or a related discipline.
