The Plant Ecology and Remote Sensing Lab in the Department of Environmental
Sciences at the University of Virginia is seeking Ph.D. students interested
in studying the climate-vegetation interactions from leaf to global scales.
We have projects using field observations, controlled experiments, and
satellite remote sensing to understand the vegetation photosynthetic
response to various environmental variables using a novel metric –
solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence. We also use drone-based and
airborne-based remote sensing with fluorescence, hyperspectral and thermal
remote sensing in combination with eddy covariance measurements to
understand key questions in ecosystem carbon and water cycling. Students’
research projects are flexible and depend on their interests.
Highly-motivated students with a background in remote sensing, ecosystem
ecology, ecophysiology, or land surface modeling would be strong fits.
Interested students should send a CV with GPA, GRE, and TOEFL (if
applicable), and a brief statement of research interests to Dr. Xi Yang (
xiyang at virginia.edu). Please email with the title “UVa Ph.D. Program [Your
name]”. The application deadline for the Department of Environmental
Sciences is *January 15th, 2018*. The start date is in Fall 2018.
