*Post Doctoral Research Position in Biogeochemistry of Tropical Forests*****
*University of California, Berkeley*****
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to participate in a DOE-sponsored
project on the controls of greenhouse gas emissions from humid tropical
forest soils. The research will entail exploration of redox dynamics,
carbon and nitrogen cycling, and greenhouse gas production and consumption.
Experience with field and lab-based biogeochemistry, trace gas
measurements, and automated field instrumentation is highly desirable. A
Ph.D. in ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, soil science, or related
fields is required. We are looking for scholars with strong skills in
written and oral communication, and a willingness to collaborate. The goals
of the research are to inform Earth system models and thus the candidate
will collaborate closely with the modeling team led by Dr. Peter Thornton.
The research will take place in the Luquillo Experimental Forest, Puerto
Rico, the site of the on-going NSF-sponsored Long Term Ecological Research
Program and Critical Zone Observatory. The position is for one year with
the potential to renew. Interested candidates should submit a CV, letter of
interest, and the names and contact information of three references to Dr.
Whendee Silver at wsilver at berkeley.edu.
