The lab is currently recruiting 1 student for a masters or PhD in meteorology starting in the Fall 2023:
–> One (1) masters or PhD student interested in better understanding methane emissions in forests and wetlands through micrometeorological and field-based techniques. With this research, we seek to push discoveries in understudied biogeochemical processes in wetlands and forests that can alter predictions of future methane emissions, and thus the greenhouse gas budget of the planet.
- A bachelor’s degree in forest engineering, atmospheric science, environmental science, ecology, environmental engineering, or closely related field.
- Ability to write code for data analysis in either Matlab, R, or Python.
- Experience doing fieldwork in forests and/or wetlands to collect biological and/or physical data.
- For international students, demonstrate English proficiency according to the graduate school requirements: http://catalog.ncsu.edu/graduate/graduate-handbook/admissions/
- Desired skills:
- Be familiar or have some experience with the use of eddy-covariance towers.
- Familiarity with the process of writing scientific papers in academia.
- Proficiency with use of Geographic Information Systems
Requirements and deadlines for the masters and PhD degrees in meteorology in the department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences can be found at https://meas.sciences.ncsu.edu/graduate/apply-to-meas/.
Please see the lab’s core research areas of interest at https://ibiomet.com. The lab also welcomes other potential research projects for a PhD program in these areas based on the student’s interests. Interested applicants should please send an email with their cv to the lab PI, Dr. Camilo Rey-Sanchez (email@example.com), along with a 1-page cover letter specifying their preference for a masters or PhD and their main research area of interest.
The lab is looking for an undergraduate research assistant to help with data collection and analysis of micrometeorological and biogeochemical data. If you are an undergraduate student at NC State University and are interested in having some fieldwork experience, please send an email to Dr. Camilo Rey-Sanchez (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a copy of your cv.
