Would you like to…
…uncover links among Arctic tundra shrub development, trophic chain dynamics, and thresholds in carbon cycling?
…master cutting edge tools in ecological remote sensing, using lasers (lidar) and spectrometers?
…conduct your Ph.D. work as an integral part of a dynamic, interdisciplinary team?
We seek sincere, motivated, creative individuals to apply for an exciting Ph.D. opportunity to work in the Alaskan Arctic, and possibly other ecosystems. Financial support is available via a newly funded NASA project awarded to a team at the University of Idaho (led by Lee Vierling and Jan Eitel) and Columbia University (led by Natalie Boelman and Kevin Griffin). This project is part of the NASA Terrestrial Ecology and North American Carbon Programs, providing myriad opportunities for interdisciplinary networking and professional growth. Start date is either January or May 2013, with the student headquartered at the U. of Idaho.
