Position text:
The Terrestrial Ecosystem Science & Technology (TEST) group at Brookhaven National Laboratory / Stony Brook University is currently recruiting Ph.D. students with an interest in one or more of the following areas:

• Remote sensing
• Modeling tropical carbon cycle processes
• Plant physiology
• Conducting field work in the tropics

A degree in the life sciences is required, preferably in plant biology, ecology or remote sensing. Candidates with an interest in the measurement and model representation of plant structural and functional traits and model-data fusion are strongly encouraged to apply.  Students will be supervised by Dr. Shawn Serbin (sserbin at bnl.gov<mailto:sserbin at bnl.gov>) and have the opportunity to structure their thesis research around a growing portfolio of research within the TEST group. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct research in a diverse range of field sites spanning paleotropical and neotropical ecosystems.  Financial support is available through a combination of research grants, graduate fellowships, and teaching opportunities. Please send CV and cover letter describing research interests to Dr. Shawn Serbin. The deadline for applicants to the Ecology & Evolution doctoral program at Stony Brook is December 1st 2016 (http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/ecoevo/program/application.html).
