Subject: PhD Graduate Assistantships in Ecosystem Ecology and Terrestrial
Ecosystem Modeling

PhD graduate student assistantships in Ecosystem Ecology and Terrestrial Ec=
osystem Modeling are available in the department of Ecology, Evolution, and=
 Organismal Biology at Iowa State University. We invite highly motivated gr=
aduate students with interest in investigating cutting-edge ecological ques=
tions in a coupled human and natural system. Our research integrates ground=
/satellite observations into process-based ecosystem modeling framework to =
examine biogeochemical and hydrological cycles, land-atmosphere exchange of=
 greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4 and N2O), and land-coastal linkage at multiple =
scales from watershed, regional, continental to global in the context of mu=
ltifactor global change (e.g., climate change, air pollution, land use and =
management, etc.). The student will work on one or two of these research ar=
eas by developing large-scale dataset, improving and calibrating terrestria=
l ecosystem/Land surface models, and analyzing simulation results. There ar=
e plenty of opportunities to work with a group of ecologists with different=
 expertise, and socioeconomists.

We expect that these new graduate students will join the lab in Fall 2017. =
The applicants should possess a degree in ecology/biology, hydrology, meteo=
rology, geography, earth system science, forestry, agronomy, or soil scienc=
e. Quantitative skills and experience in terrestrial ecosystem/land surface=
 modeling, remote sensing, geospatial and/or statistical analysis are prefe=
rable. I will recruit students through the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology=
 Graduate Program (https://eeb.iastate.edu/) and the Environmental Science =
Graduate Program (https://enscigrad.iastate.edu/) at Iowa State University =
(Application due January 15, 2017). Please contact me in advance for more d=

Interested applicants should send a cover letter (outlining their qualifica=
tions and research interest), resume, and copies of transcripts, TOFEL, GRE=
 scores, and contact information for three references to Dr. Chaoqun Lu at =
