I am seeking a post-doc to start as soon as possible and PhD student(s) to start Fall 2017. Specific projects will focus on changes in carbon and nitrogen cycling with urban development and forest fragmentation using a combination of field observation, remote sensing, atmospheric measurements, and numeric models. Experience with satellite retrievals, GIS, and field observations required for the post-doctoral position, preferred for the student position(s). The Hutyra Lab investigates carbon dynamics in forest systems and urban areas, studying a range of topics including forest ecology, urban carbon and nitrogen cycling, land use change impact on ecosystem productivity, fossil fuel emission patterns and determinants, and climatic controls on ecosystem carbon exchange. The Department of Earth & Environment is highly interdisciplinary with particular strengths in remote sensing, environmental economics, and biogeochemistry. If interested, please send a letter with your research interests and a CV to Dr. Lucy Hutyra. Visit the lab website (http://sites.bu.edu/hutyra/) for more information about current lab research.
