Dear all,

Please, find attached the call for a Post Doctoral Position at CREAF on
Genetic and Epigenetic Responses of Plants (and Microorganisms) to Nutrient
Imbalances (text + pdf).

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours sincerely,



*Post Doctoral Position on Genetic and Epigenetic Responses of Plants (and
Microorganisms) to Nutrient ImbalancesERC Synergy Grant: IMBALANCE-P*

A collaborative research team led by Josep Peñuelas (CREAF), Ivan Janssens
(UA, Belgium), Philippe Ciais (CEA-UVSQ, France), and Michael Obersteiner
(IIASA, Austria) in a vibrant research environment is offering a *postdoctoral
position* to study the effects of phosphorus limitations on Life, Earth
system and Society (ERC Synergy grant: IMBALANCE-P).

The aim of IMBALANCE-P is to quantify and understand the responses of Life,
Society and the Earth System to current and future P shortages and the N to
P stoichiometric imbalance created by widespread N additions and rising
atmospheric CO2, and to identify the options available to improve the
management of the P cycle. The P-dependent implications for Life, Society,
and the Earth System are tightly interconnected, but have so far mostly
been considered in fragmented single-discipline research. IMBALANCE-P will
achieve a global closure of the P cycle, and generate a novel integrated
knowledge of the impacts of the C:N:P imbalances on natural ecosystems'
diversity and function, climate, agriculture, and society.

*In CREAF we are looking for *a highly motivated and collaborative* Post
Doc* to study the *genetic and epigenetic responses of plants (and/or
microorganisms) to nutrient imbalances.*

Ideally, the work begins in May 2014 but other starting dates can be
discussed. The positions are offered for one year with a possibility of
renewal for more years.

*Qualifications: * Applicants should be enthusiastic and highly-qualified
doctors holding a PhD degree in molecular ecology or any related field.
They should ideally have a strong background in genetics and epigenetics.
Experience in laboratory techniques, field measurements, process modeling
or data analysis with script languages (Matlab, R, Python) or other
programming languages is appreciated. In addition, the applicants should
have solid experience in working both independently and in group. Fluency
in English (oral and written) is mandatory.

Annual Salary: Approx 27000-30000 Euros

*Location:* Centre for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications

*Application Process:*  We look forward to receiving your application -
including a motivation letter, a statement of research interests, a CV, and
the names and contact addresses of three academic referees - Please send
your application to josep.penuelas at uab.cat.

*The deadline for applications is April 15*

For further information about the position please contact Prof. Josep
Peñuelas: josep.penuelas at uab.cat
