Title:  Postdoctoral Scholar

Position Number: 00105580

Department: Soil Science

We seek an exceptional postdoctoral fellow to conduct independent research
in the growing interdisciplinary field of soil and environmental microbial
ecology. This basic research seeks to better understand the ecosystem
processes that are mediated by crop, soil, and environmental inhabiting
microbial communities. In addition to standard microbiological and
analytical techniques used in crops and soil sciences, activities will
include the characterization of bacterial and fungal associations by using
light, scanning and confocal microscopy, gas chromatography, molecular and
genomics/post genomics techniques, bioinformatics and statistics. The
project may also have a geochemistry component that focuses on analytical
methods, using electron microscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, and diffraction
techniques. Related activities include laboratory work; supervising
graduate students; data analysis; maintenance and calibration of laboratory
equipment; report, manuscript, and proposal preparation; and presentation
of research at local, regional, and national meetings. Opportunities exist
to interact closely with a group of accomplished intramural and extramural
collaborators, including at collaborating academic institutions and the
USDA ARS facilities.

Thank you!
