We seek a creative, highly motivated postdoctoral scholar to study the
major controls on soil N2O fluxes and develop improved stable isotope tools
for this work. The postdoc will have a unique and exciting opportunity to
work in a wide range of ecosystems where biogeochemical research is
ongoing, including mesquite savannas, pine forests, intensively managed
agricultural systems, and the semi-arid Caatinga forests in Brazil. The
postdoctoral scholar will be affiliated with the Stable Isotopes for
Biosphere Science laboratory (http://sibs.tamu.edu) and will join a highly
collaborative group of researchers at Texas A&M University. Interacting
faculty will include Jason West
<https://sites.google.com/site/westlabgroup/>, Tom Boutton
<http://agrilife.org/boutton/>, Frank Hons
<https://frankhons.tamu.edu/research/index.htm>, Jason Vogel
<http://vogellab.tamu.edu/>, and Brad Wilcox <http://agrilife.org/wilcox/>,
along with Jed Sparks
<http://ecologyandevolution.cornell.edu/people/faculty/jed-sparks.cfm> at
Cornell, and other collaborators affiliated with the PINEMAP project (
http://pinemap.org). Successful candidates will have experience in soil
trace gas fluxes or trace gas isotope geochemistry and an interest in N
biogeochemistry. Familiarity with N2O isotopomers in particular will be a
significant advantage, as will prior publications on related aspects of N
biogeochemistry. Candidates must hold a PhD by the start of the position.
Salary will be commensurate with experience and includes a competitive
benefits package. Funding is initially available to support two years of
work. Texas A&M University is a vibrant academic community in the city of
College Station - a friendly, affordable city with easy access to Austin,
Houston, and a convenient local commercial airport. To apply, navigate to
the A&M job application website (https://greatjobs.tamu.edu) and
search for *NOV
number:* *07962*. Applicants should submit all materials online since
applications sent outside of the online system cannot be considered.
General inquiries or questions about the position may be sent to Jason West
(jbwest at tamu.edu).
