Doctoral Program

You will be paired with a BNL scientist on a mutually agreed upon project, which will enhance your research skills and may lead to multiple scientific publications and may support your graduate thesis or dissertation.

Apply to Doctoral Program*

Post-doctoral Program

You will participate in a cutting-edge scientific research program, directed by a BNL staff member. The nature of your research assignment will be determined after a review of your background and interests by our staff.

Apply to Post-doc Program*

Undergraduate Program

You will be mentored by a BNL scientist in an ongoing research project during a six week summer session. You may also work during the academic year, usually to complete your project.

Our research aims to improve understanding of the mechanisms that underlie whole plant and ecosystem responses to global change, and to improve representation of these processes in Earth System Models. The computational and analytical techniques we use in the TEST group are focused on quantifying model sensitivity, and measuring and scaling key whole plant and ecosystem processes.
