Dr. Chunyuan DiaoÃ¢ÂEURÂ(tm)s group in the
Department of Geography and GIScience at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) is seeking highly motivated M.S. and Ph.D. students
interested in environmental and quantitative remote sensing beginning Fall,
Research projects in the lab include (but not limited to) advancing and
integrating time series remote sensing, machine learning and deep learning
models, and crop and environmental models, to understand multi-scale
agricultural and forest dynamic processes in response to climate change and
human activities. More information is available at

Students admitted to the lab will be
financially supported as research assistants or teaching assistants. The
students in the lab are encouraged to develop their own projects based on
the research interests, and will work on high-performance and cloud
computing platforms to advance remote sensing-related science.
The desired candidates will have
1) A bachelor or master degree in remote sensing, geography,
statistics, computer science, ecology, environmental science, or a closely
2) Strong programming and computing skills;
3) Solid background in remote sensing, statistics, and GIS;
4) Interests in agricultural/forest scientific discoveries;
5) Proficiency in spoken/written English.
Please check the webpage
of the department for
application details. To receive full consideration, qualified applicants
should complete their applications by *December 19, 2020*.
Interested students are highly encouraged to contact Dr. Chunyuan Diao (
email@example.com) with CV, copies of transcripts, TOEFL (if
applicable), and a brief statement of research experience and interests.
The Department of Geography and GIScience at the UIUC offers an
extraordinary environment for remote sensing and GIScience research and
education. The department is part of the School of Earth, Society &
Environment (SESE) which includes three departments (Geography and
GIScience; Geology; and Atmospheric Sciences). SESE hosts its own
high-performance computing cluster and supports a multidisciplinary program
in geospatial and environmental studies. The National Center for
Supercomputing Applications at the UIUC provides cutting-edge computing,
data storage, and visualization resources. Students working in the lab have
excellent opportunities to work in high-performance and cloud computing
environment to advance remote sensing and related science.
