[ECOLOG-L] PhD position in Lidar Remote Sensing

We seek a PhD student for a project that uses advanced terrestrial,
airborne, and satellite remote sensing technologies, including lidar
and UASs (Unmanned Aerial Systems), to quantify biomass and carbon
changes in rangeland and forest ecosystems. The student will be
enrolled in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management
(http://essm.tamu.edu/) at Texas A&M
University working with Dr. Sorin Popescu
Individuals interested in lidar remote sensing and applications for
assessing vegetation biophysical parameters at multiple scales, such
as forest biomass and carbon assessment and 3-D canopy structure for
ecosystem studies, are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be
comfortable working occasionally in field conditions for in-situ data
collection. Funds for stipend and tuition are available for three
years. Preference will be given to students with a prior MSc in a
related field, ideally familiar with lidar remote sensing, processing
algorithms, and at least basic knowledge in statistical analysis and
programming languages, such as R or IDL. Candidates should be
available to start as early as fall of 2015 or soon thereafter.
Interested individuals should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae,
and university transcripts to Dr. Sorin Popescu.”
