Dear Colleagues,

I’m starting up my lab at UMass-Amherst this winter and have funding
for postdoc and PhD positions (see below).  If you have or know of
good students that may be looking for a position studying
microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions in soils, please feel free
to spread the word.

Thank you very much!

Best wishes,

Postdoc and PhD positions at the University of Massachusetts—Amherst
– Soil Biogeochemistry

We are inviting applications for fully funded PhD and postdoc
positions in the Soil Biogeochemistry group at the University of
Massachusetts Amherst.  Successful candidates will conduct research
into the role of microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions in
elemental cycling, particularly that of carbon, and their
susceptibility to climate change impacts.  The candidates will combine
detailed molecular analyses, laboratory experiments, and field
manipulations to link fundamental biogeochemical processes to the
functioning of the whole soil ecosystem. This research will provide
the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge synchrotron-based
spectroscopy/microscopy, mass spectrometry, isotope tracer, and
molecular biology techniques.  Potential start dates are negotiable.
Inquiries for further information should be sent to Dr. Marco
Keiluweit (keiluweit at umass.edu).
