Opportunities are available for students with fellowships for graduate studies from extramural agencies [CSIR/UGC/DBT] to work on projects relating to long-term dynamics and ecosystem services, primarily carbon sequestration, in forests of the Indian sub-continent.  The work will be based around a network of long-term monitoring plots that are being set up across a range of forest types in India that afford the opportunity to address fundamental questions in ecology linking plant functional traits to demography, phenology, carbon sequestration and cycling.  Students will be expected to spend considerable amounts of time in the field.  Desired skills that we are looking for include the ability to work independently, ability to work long hours in rough and remote field conditions, basic familiarity with plant taxonomy, database management and statistical/analytical skills.
