GS-12 research chemist/microbiologist position is available at the USGS’
Menlo Park, CA, campus, conducting fundamental research on soil carbon
cycling that supports the Climate and Land Use (CLU) R&D program and
externally funded USDA grant. The overarching goal is to study the
interactions among mineral assemblages, microbial communities, and carbon
forms that will ultimately inform next-generation carbon cycle models. The
research will encompass lab and field studies and will employ a combination
of spectroscopic, microbial, and isotopic techniques. Field studies will be
focused on climo-chronosequences along the California coastal range near
Santa Cruz and Mattole, CA. Laboratory studies will focus on constructed
soil microcosms, and will involve the development and use of microbeam
Raman and infrared (IR) techniques as well as isotope tracing to visualize
the fate of carbon in the three dimensional structure of soil. For
questions or more information please contact Mark Waldrop: mwaldrop at usgs.gov
