Position Announcement: PhD Position in Remote Sensing and Climate 
Modeling at Cornell

The School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University is seeking 
a highly
motivated PhD student to conduct interdisciplinary studies in land 
surface processes. The
position is located in the Section of Soil and Crop Science. The 
successful applicant is expected
to learn and apply advanced observational, modeling and geospatial 
approaches to integrate eco-physiological, biophysical, biogeochemical 
and hydrological processes to understand and
forecast complex land surface dynamics at different spatial and temporal 
scales in the context of
climate change. The successful applicant will have opportunities to gain 
experience in
developing and applying regional/global land surface models (e.g., 
NCAR’s CESM), analyzing
remote sensing datasets (e.g., solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence, 
Lidar, etc), conducting
field measurements at Cornell research farms, and presenting original 
scientific results at
meetings and in publications.

Requirements include background in an ecology-, agriculture-, climate-, 
sensing-, or computation-related field, strong interests in big-data 
analysis, data mining, statistics,
and programing experience in at least one of Fortran, C, Matlab, NCL, R 
or Python. Preferences
are given to those with some knowledge in remote sensing, CESM/CLM, or 
field sensors and
data acquisition.

Application: Please submit application materials to Cornell graduate school
at http://gradschool.cornell.edu/admissions/applying/apply-now.
