 *Postdoctoral Fellowship in Soil Organic Matter Biogeochemistry at the
University of Toronto Scarborough *

 A 2.5 year postdoctoral research position in Soil Organic Matter
Biogeochemistry is available in the research group of Professor Myrna
Simpson at the University of Toronto (Scarborough Campus). The successful
candidate will participate in molecular-level studies of soil organic
matter composition in varying environments and with long-term ecosystem
manipulations. Candidates will also participate in mechanistic studies
pertaining to soil organic matter – mineral interactions.

Applicants should have a strong publication record and a PhD in
Environmental Chemistry or Soil Chemistry or Geochemistry or a closely
related field. Applicants with previous experience in organic matter
biomarker analysis will be given preference. Previous NMR experience is
also beneficial but not essential as candidates will receive full hands on
training. Successful candidates will have access to state-of-the-art NMR
and MS equipment in the Environmental NMR Centre which houses three unique,
hyphenated 500MHz NMR spectrometers specially designed for environmental
applications. Prof. Myrna Simpson’s research laboratory recently moved to a
new research building with new labs and office space for group members as
well as dedicated instrument rooms. Prof. Simpson’s research laboratory
houses a fully automated LC, new GC-MS (installation summer of 2015), GC
with preparative fraction collector, and a new LC-MS/MS (installation
summer of 2015) as well as other support equipment. More information about
the Myrna Simpson research group can be found at:

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and the name of 3
referees to: Prof. Myrna Simpson (myrna.simpson at utoronto.ca). The position
is available as of May 1, 2015 and will remain open until filled.
