MSc Research Assistantship in Urban Remote Sensing at the University of Alabama in Huntsville

Applications are invited for a 2-year graduate research assistant at the Master’s level beginning fall 2018 in the Earth System Science (ESS) program of the Department of Atmospheric Science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).  We are looking for students who are interested in continuing their graduate education with a funded GA position on remote sensing analysis and its applications in urban environmental studies, e.g. urban climate, urban heat island, and human health. The 2-year position will be funded to pursue a Master of Science degree in the ESS program under the guidance of Dr. Leiqiu Hu.

The potential candidate is expected to have basic quantitative background training in remote sensing, atmospheric sciences, or other related physical sciences. Programming experience is desired, such as R, Python, IDL or MATLAB.

Priority admittance will be given to individuals who apply by the following dates: April 1 (if currently living outside the United States), June 1 (if currently living inside the United States).
