        Research Opportunities at UNC Chapel Hill

        Colleagues,

        One Post-doc and Two Ph.D. Opportunities in Remote Sensing of
        Vegetation
        and Terrestrial Ecosystem Modeling are available in the Department of
        Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The
        prospective candidates will be working on extracting vegetation
        information from remotely sensed images of multiple sensors and using
        ecological models that take vegetation information from remote
        sensing to
        simulate ecosystem energy, carbon and water fluxes at a regional
        scale in
        the context of land-cover/land-use change. Applicants are expected
        to be
        highly motivated in scientific research with a strong background in
        remote
        sensing/GIS as well as physical geography with an emphasis on
        ecosystem
        ecology, eco-hydrology, eco-climatology, ecosystem modeling or
        related
        fields. The applicants should possess strong quantitative and
        computer
        programming skills. The post-doc position can start as soon as
        possible
        for a year initially, and renewable depending on performance and
        availability of funding. The Ph.D. positions can start as early as
        June
        1, 2007. Please contact Dr. Conghe Song via email at
        csong@...
        or phone at 919-843-4764 for further details.

        Please forward the email to interested parties,

            *************************************************

            A Ph.D. student or postdoctoral associate is sought to expand
            interdisciplinary studies on coupled human and natural systems (e.g.,
            ecological and economic effects of natural resource management;
            effects of
            household dynamics on the environment such as biodiversity,
            landscapes,
            and natural resources; environmental effects of economic
            globalization; reciprocal interactions between human and natural
            systems

            demography, sociology, economics, geography, wildlife biology,
            biodiversity conservation, land use and land cover change, policy
            analysis, and human-environment interactions. Interests in integrating
            natural and social sciences are required. Strong quantitative skills
            (e.g., remote sensing, geographic information systems, computer
            modeling,
            mathematics, and/or statistics) are desirable. Stipends/salaries and
            benefits are competitive. Start date is negotiable.

            Reviews of applications will be conducted periodically and will
            continue
            until the position is filled. Interested individuals are encouraged to
            provide the following materials as soon as possible: (1) cover letter
            indicating general and specific research interests/experiences,
            (2) statement of professional goals (e.g., plans after finishing the
            doctoral or postdoctoral training), (3) resume, (4) transcripts, (5)
            list
            of three references (names, email addresses, phone numbers, and postal
            addresses), and (6) GRE scores and TOEFL scores (TOEFL scores are
            required
            for applicants whose native language is not English). (Photocopies of
            transcripts and GRE/TOEFL scores are okay initially.) Please email,

              Two assistantships are available for students entering the PhD
              program in Geography and Urban Regional Analysis at the University of
              North Carolina at Charlotte. Recipients with research interests in
              urban/regional transportation analysis, spatial analysis (Incl.
              spatial statistics), and/or geographic information science are
              particularly sought, but related interests will also be given
              consideration. Recipients are expected to enter the program either in
              fall 2007 or spring 2008. Research/teaching fellowships include 4
              years of funding (stipend and tuition).

              UNC-Charlotte launched the new PhD program in fall 2006 with a class

                We have one remaining fellowship for the PhD program in
                computational
                social science at George Mason, for a student to begin studies in
                fall 2007. A student MUST have the following qualifications to be
                considered for the fellowship:

                - Combined math and verbal GRE scores of 1200 or higher;
                - A GPA in the last degree program of 3.5 or higher;
                - All other qualifications required for admission to the PhD
                program, detailed below (including prior coursework in calculus,
                programming, and statistics).

                The research fellowship includes 3 years of funding under the
                following terms:

                -$18,000 stipend for the academic year
                - 9 units of tuition remission (3 courses) for each semester

                The research fellow will be expected to participate in Center
                research 20 hours per week during the academic year and to also
                participate in Center activities such as brown-bag seminars and
                discussions with visiting scholars. S/he must also maintain normal
                progress to degree and a minimum GPA of 3.5.

                Interested students with these qualifications should contact Dawn
                Parker, acting graduate program director (cssgrad@...).

                The PhD program in computational social science at George Mason
                University, entering its third year, has 12 enrolled and 4 newly
                admitted students, and offers a wide variety of specialized courses
                in agent-based modeling of complex social systems. Core faculty

                and Dawn Parker, as well as a large number of affiliated faculty.
                In
                addition to focused courses in computational social science and
                modeling, students complete coursework in discipline-oriented social
                science, such as economics, political science, sociology, geography,
                environmental policy, and anthropology.

                Current students in the CSS PhD program have the opportunity to

                encouraged to submit these on-line through the on-line application
                system, which allows applications to track the status of their
                application. (https://patriotweb.gmu.edu/pls/prod/
                bwskalog.P_DispLoginNon)

                Additionally, but not as a requirement, an applicant may submit
                prior
                work in computational social science, such as a simulation model or
                publications. The letters of recommendation must arrive directly
                from
                the recommenders and may be submitted electronically as .pdf
                attachments (send to: mhayes5@..., with copy to
                cssgrad@... ). Items 6-8 are forwarded to the program at the
                applicant's request.

                Each application is reviewed by the Program Director, who shares
                them
                with the faculty members listed by the applicant. The admissions
                decision is determined by an applicant's credentials and matching
                faculty interests. The program may recommend that an applicant delay
                another year, pending completion of additional coursework. An
                interview with an applicant may be necessary in some cases. No
                specific set of qualifications guarantees admission to the program.

                  Post Doc Positions: Land Cover and Land Use Change and Carbon Dynamics

                  Applications are sought for one or two postdoc positions in the
                  general
                  area of land cover and land use change, and the implications of
                  forest
                  change on carbon dynamics. Opportunities will exist to work closely
                  with the USGS/NASA Landsat Science Team, the NASA Land Cover and Land
                  Use Change Science Team and the Land Cover Implementation Team of
                  GOFC/GOLD. Expertise in remote sensing and ecosystem processes is
                  desired. There may be opportunities to participate in teaching in
                  support of development of skills for future faculty positions.
