The Ecosystem Modelling and Observation (EMO) Lab in the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Environment at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, USA is seeking a self-motivated doctoral student or postdoc researcher who is willing to pursue research in the area of wetland remote sensing and carbon cycling. Specific research topics are open.
The successful doctoral candidate will enroll in the Ph.D. program in Earth System Science. A master’s degree in geography, engineering, Earth science, ecology, or environmental science is preferred but not required. Candidates with experience in using R/Python programming languages, deep machine learning, and/or remote sensing technology are especially encouraged to apply. In the program, the candidate is expected to develop strong modeling (AI or process-based) and/or data analysis skills and will have the opportunity to study a wide range of climate change and environmental issues.
For the postdoc position, a Ph.D. degree in geography, engineering, Earth science, ecology, or environmental science is required. Experience in using Python programming, cloud computing, deep machine learning, and both SAR and optical remote sensing technology is preferred but not required.
Successful candidates for both positions will work with Dr. Zutao Yang and his collaborators at Auburn University and multiple other research institutes. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Zutao Yang (email@example.com) and attach (1) a comprehensive CV, (2) a Cover Letter outlining your skills, research experience, and future research interests/goals. For Ph.D. candidates, please also include a copy of unofficial academic transcripts and TOEFL/IELTS/PET/DET transcripts (if applicable).
