The Digital Agriculture and Soil Science Laboratory in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences at the University of Kentucky is seeking an enthusiastic and motivated Ph.D. student for multi-state projects. The selected student will be assisted in developing his/her/their own research projects. One of the research ideas is to integrate field and proximal/remote sensing-based data and assess the effects of soil health practices on carbon/nutrient cycling, water dynamics, and yield stability in agroecosystems. The student is expected to employ stochastic and process-based models to simulate the existing soil health practices in Kentucky. This work will be conducted as part of an interdisciplinary team comprising various scientists, growers, crop consultants, and government agencies. Another idea includes, but is not limited to, working with the large existing cover crop datasets. There are numerous opportunities to further enhance collaborations and expand research in both fieldwork and computational studies. The student is strongly encouraged to develop their own research topics leading up to graduation and disseminate research findings through peer reviewed journal articles and presentations at scientific meetings/conferences. Financial support, including tuition waiver and a generous stipend, is available. QUALIFICATIONS: The ideal candidate will have a ...more
