*PhD Position: Landscape responses to fire*

The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University
seeks a motivated student interested in pursing PhD (Geosciences). The
research project will investigate the applicability of novel techniques – rare
earth element tracers for wind erosion, and LiDAR (Ground-based & Unmanned
Aerial Systems) for soil microtopography and vegetation structure – to
monitor landscape responses to disturbances (fires). The project will
involve a combination of extensive field experiments (in New Mexico) and
laboratory analysis. The PhD position (Fall 2015) will be fully funded
through research and teaching assistantships. The student will be advised
by Sujith Ravi (Temple University, PA https://sites.temple.edu/ravi/home/)
and will work in close collaboration with Joel Sankey (USGS, Southwest
Biological Science Center, Flagstaff, AZ) and Junran Li (University of
Tulsa, OK). Applicants must hold a Master degree or equivalent in geology,
earth science or environmental sciences, with strong oral and written
communication skills. Experience in geochemical analysis (e.g. ICP-MS) and
geostatistics is preferred.
