*North Carolina-Assistant Professor / Rhizosphere Science, *Department of
Crop and Soil Sciences, NC State University, Raleigh, NC. Twelve month,
tenure track position with an appointment of 80% Research/20% Teaching.
Salary commensurate with experience. The successful candidate will organize
and conduct grant-funded basic and applied research on processes
controlling root growth and function, and root interactions with the
rhizosphere environment.  We are specifically interested in candidates who
utilize approaches such as stable isotopes, advanced imaging, and
metabolomics to focus on basic and applied research topics, including those
related to: root abiotic stress; crop productivity and nutrient dynamics;
environmental remediation; carbon storage and dynamics in soils; and
modeling of root growth. It is expected that experimentation will extend
from laboratory and controlled environments to the field. The faculty
member will develop a new graduate level course on root growth and
rhizosphere processes, and may also contribute to undergraduate classes in
soil fertility. Minimum education/experience: Ph.D. in Soil Science, Crop
Science, Biogeochemistry, Horticulture, or a related field is required,
with extensive training in plant-soil interactions, and advanced
biological, chemical, and analytical techniques. In-depth knowledge of the
relationship between root-zone processes and whole plant systems is
essential.  The successful candidate is expected to: develop a productive
research program that is sustained by extramural grant funding and is
responsive to solving problems of state, national, or international
importance; publish scholarly work in internationally recognized
peer-reviewed journals; teach courses consistent with departmental needs;
collaborate with other departmental faculty engaged in agronomic and
environmental research; and participate in interdisciplinary research with
faculty within Crop and Soil Sciences and from other departments at NC
State University, as well as personnel from cooperating universities,
institutions, agencies, and organizations.
