Graduate student positions
I accept new PhD students each year, in the general research areas described on the Research page. The work entails working existing eddy covariance, chamber flux, soil and biometric data, as well as new field measurements. Ideally, the candidates should have some of the following skills: solid understanding of ecosystem carbon cycle, plant ecophysiology, carbon flux measurements, soil carbon dynamics, experience working with large datasets, and experience with a scientific programming language (Matlab desired). Field site maintenance involves travel to remote locations, requiring a valid US driver’s license, and ability to work at heights (up to 45 m). Most of all, I am looking for intellectual curiosity and passion for the chosen topic.
If interested, please send a cover letter outlining your research interests, curriculum vitae, copies of academic transcripts, and examples of your writing and programming skills. Departmental acceptance criteria and application procedure for prospective students are listed here.
Opportunities regularly open up to work in areas listed above and on the Research pages. Please contact me if interested (noormets at tamu dot edu).
