[Caglist] MSc Opportunity – Remote Sensing of Vegetation

MSc
Opportunity – Remote Sensing of Vegetation

Call for applications for two MSc positions in Remote Sensing of vegetation at the
Department of Geography, Planning and Environment
at Concordia University, Montreal.

 

The MSc graduate positions are part of a broader FRQNT-funded project which aims to characterize and evaluate plant phenology shifts in response to
environmental changes using remote sensing. The specific objectives of the project are:

 

1) to determine the most suitable vegetation indices for plant phenology monitoring (i.e. monitoring of leaf unfolding, flowering, vegetative
maturity), and;

 

2) to evaluate and compare plant phenology indicators determined at different scales (plant, plot, regional, global) and different ecosystems
(e.g. crop, wetland, forest).

 

Ideal candidates should have strong Remote sensing and analytical skills, including knowledge of spatial data analysis tools (e.g. ArcGIS,
QGIS, PCI geomatica, Terrset, ENVI/IDL, etc) and statistical analysis (e.g. R, SPSS, etc). The project involves intensive computational / analytical components and field work, thus preference will be given to those with experience in (or the willingness to
learn) field data collection and computer programming for spatial analysis (e.g. python).

 

Selected candidates will work with Dr. Angela Kross and will receive a funding package for the two
years of their graduate degree, comprising of a mix of bursaries and teaching / research assistantships. The preferred start date is September 2018.

 

If interested, please send your CV, your grade point averages for your previous programs (transcripts) and a brief statement of qualifications for this position to the following email address:
grad.gpe@concordia.ca. Please consult the
department website to learn more about the department. Deadline for applications is Friday June 01st. Informal queries about the project should be directed to Dr. Angela
Kross (angela.kross@concordia.ca).
