The Plant Ecology and Remote Sensing Lab (https://uva.theopenscholar.com/plant-ecology-lab) in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia is seeking Ph.D. students interested in studying the climate-vegetation interactions from leaf to global scales.
We have projects using noel field observations, controlled experiments, satellite remote sensing, and models to understand the impact of climate change on vegetation function and structure. We use a wide range of remote sensing tools including hyperspectral remote sensing, measurements of solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence, thermal remote sensing, and LiDAR. 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 and TOEFL (if applicable), and a brief statement of research interests to Dr. Xi Yang (email@example.com). Please email with the title “UVa Ph.D. Program [Your name]”. We are looking for one student to start in the fall of 2021.
