PhD Assistantship – Arctic Carbon Cycle Modeling

Michael Rawlins

PhD Assistantship – Arctic Carbon Cycle Modeling

The Climate System Research Center at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst seeks a PhD student to join a project funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The research centers on estimation of carbon dioxide and methane fluxes across tundra and boreal forest regions of northern Eurasia using numerical modeling and remote sensing approaches. It involves collaboration with researchers working in hydrology, ecology, and remote sensing at the University of Massachusetts, the University of Washington, and the City College of New York. The ideal candidate should have quantitative and numerical modeling experience in a linux/unix environment. Ability to analyze large spatial data sets is also desirable. Applicants with a Masters degree in geosciences, hydrology, physical geography, mathematics, computer science, or related disciplines are encouraged to apply. Highly motivated recent BS graduates will also be considered.
The candidate research assistant will enroll in the UMass Department of Geosciences PhD program (http://www.geo.umass.edu/programs/grad.html). Research at the Climate System Research Center (http://www.geo.umass.edu/climate/) is focused on the climate system, climatic variability and global change issues, from contemporary climate variations, their causes and consequences, to paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes.
Please send a description of your research interests, a full curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references to Michael Rawlins ([hidden email]). Review of applications will begin in mid February 2012.
