Subject: PhD in forest carbon cycling and global change
We seek a PhD student who will assist in developing a model of the
disintegration and decay of standing dead trees. The student will be a
member of the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Texas A&M
University working with Drs. Jason Vogel, Georgianne Moore, and Sorin
Popescu. The student will primarily be responsible for building a model of
wood decay and integrating its mass loss estimates with measurements of
branch senescence and tree fall. Tree disintegration will be estimated in
collaboration with a Postdoctoral associate who will be using LiDAR images,
both ground based and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms, to estimate
changes in dead tree structure. Individuals interested in ecosystem carbon
cycling, remote sensing, or forest ecology are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should be comfortable working in field conditions and doing
fairly strenuous work. Funds for a generous stipend and tuition are
available for three years. Preference will be given to students with a
prior MSc in a related field, or applicable experience in a related topic.
Candidates available to start in the spring, summer, or fall of 2015 will
be considered. Interested individuals should send a cover letter,
curriculum vitae, and university transcripts to Dr. Jason G. Vogel (
jason_vogel at tamu.edu), Dr. Georgianne Moore (gwmoore at tamu.edu) or Dr. Sorin
Popescu (s-popescu at tamu.edu).
