Ph.D. / M.S. Assistantships
(1) Ph.D. Assistantship (Spring/Summer/Fall 2013) - Geospatial Carbon Modeling at Continental Scale:
Students interested in a Ph.D. assistantship focused on - soil carbon modeling, pedometrics, digital soil mapping, and geospatial analysis - can apply following the application guidelines at: http://soils.ifas.ufl.edu/academics/application.html. This research project is focused on large scale modeling of soil/terrestrial carbon across North America and understanding carbon variation along climatic, topographic, pedogenic, and ecological trajectories. Specific attention will be focused on analyzing the effects of land use/biome and global climate change on soil carbon. The candidate is expected to have strong expertise in digital soil mapping and modeling including quantitative methods/landscape modeling and skills in GIS, remote sensing, and soil science/natural resources/environmental science; a M.S. degree in physical geography, geospatial science, environmental science, soil science, or similar discipline is desirable. In your application letter indicate your interest in the Ph.D. assistantship "Geospatial Carbon Modeling at Continental Scale" (Research Advisor: S. Grunwald).
How to apply for the assistantships?
If you are interested in the research topics above please submit a complete application to seek entrance into one of the following graduate programs:
(ii) Graduate programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) in Interdisciplinary Ecology offered by the School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE), University of Florida: http://www.snre.ufl.edu/. Information how to seek entrance into the graduate program in Interdisciplinary Ecology can be found at: http://www.snre.ufl.edu/graduate/. In your application letter indicate your interest in the graduate assistantship "geospatial carbon modeling" (Research Advisor: S. Grunwald).
After a complete application has been submitted (including application form and letter, GRE scores, [Toefl scores - only international students], recommendation letters, etc.) qualified candidates will be invited for an interview. Assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis.
