Opening for two funded PhD positions
Two funded PhD positions are available in the lab of Dr. Jingqiu Mao at University of Alaska Fairbanks, to study aerosols from boreal forest fires. The first position is to measure and model brown carbon emitted from boreal forest fires, funded by NSF. The second position is to improve surface PM2.5 during fire seasons with NASA satellites.
Prospective students should send me an email at email@example.com, with a complete CV and a paragraph describing your research interests. The PhD position can start as soon as the summer of 2021. Please contact me immediately if you are interested.
After graduate students join our group, I would encourage them to apply for external fellowships (listed below).
