Appalachian State University (ASU) and the Department of Geography and Planning is recruiting a highly qualified graduate student who is interested in pursuing a Master’s program in Geography that focuses on high resolution remote sensing of vegetation in the western US. Graduate research assistant (RA) support is available through a Graduate Research Assistant Mentoring (GRAM) program sponsored by the Cratis D. Williams School of Graduate Studies at ASU. The RA is for two academic years, with a stipend each year of $12,000 for a 20-hour/week appointment. Additional travel funds are available for projects that involve field sampling. The position will support a currently funded NASA Terrestrial Ecology grant on scalable vegetation structure for ecosystem modeling in the western US. Specific opportunities include hyperspectral and lidar image processing, field data collection, geospatial programming, ecological modeling and project outreach through interactions with students and faculty at collaborating universities (Boise State University and University California Davis) and NASA personnel. If interested, please send a brief statement summarizing your interest and motivation for graduate study and a CV to Jessica Mitchell: Applications are still being accepted for admission to the graduate program of the Department of Geography and Planning for Fall 2015.
