Twelve fully funded graduate assistantships with $25,000 salary, benefits, and 
tuition support are available for Fall 2019 through the Ph.D. program in 
Geospatial Analytics ( at the Center for Geospatial 
Analytics ( at North Carolina State University. The 
application deadline is February 1, 2019.

Students in the Geospatial Analytics doctoral program work on a diverse range 
of data science frontiers intersecting multiple disciplines, with funding 
available from the Ph.D. program as well as from external grants secured by 
faculty. The following opportunities are a sample of externally funded 
assistantships available for Fall 2019, each fully funded for four years. 
Interested students are encouraged to contact Rachel Kasten, Graduate Services 
Coordinator ( or 919-515-2800), with any questions or 
inquiries about additional opportunities. Further details and complete 
application instructions are available at

• Landscape Connectivity Dynamics in Surface Water Networks — Join the 
Geospatial Analysis for Environmental Change Lab to investigate climate and 
land-use change effects on landscape connectivity dynamics.

• Seasonality from Space — Join the Spatial Ecosystem Analytics Lab on a 
NASA-funded project investigating satellite data fusion and time series 

• Winter Weather — Join the Environment Analytics group to study the complex 
interactions within snow storms and wintery mix storms.

• Modeling Forest and Water Resources under Changing Conditions — Join the 
Watershed Ecology lab group and combine various data sources to create 
projections of future landscape conditions.

• Modeling Agricultural and Water Resource Dynamics — Join the Biosystems 
Analytics Lab to study the effects of global and local change on fresh and 
estuarine water quality, land-sea connectivity and agroecosystem productivity.

• Surface Water Dynamics from Space — Join the Geospatial Analysis for 
Environmental Change Lab to investigate hydroclimatic drivers of surface water 
extent dynamics and advance quantification of water extent and volume.

• Remote Sensing Forest Gap Dynamics — Join the Applied Remote Sensing and 
Analysis lab group to examine the role and influence of forest gaps in relation 
to localized large-scale disturbances. 

The Center for Geospatial Analytics at NC State is the foremost 
interdisciplinary research and teaching center of its kind in the nation. We 
are a collaborative hub for integrative data scientists advancing novel 
understanding of spatial phenomena and applying new knowledge to grand 
challenges. Students in the Ph.D. program receive multidisciplinary advising 
and the opportunity to work with over twenty faculty fellows with diverse 
expertise from nearly a dozen departments across NC State. Students also engage 
in experiential learning through an off-campus professional externship.
