Postdoctoral Position, Rhizosphere Biogeochemistry, UMass Amherst
The Soil and Microbial Biogeochemistry Group at UMass Amherst is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in rhizosphere biogeochemistry.
We are seeking a highly motivated and well-trained scientist with a strong background and experience in soil biogeochemistry and mineral-organic interactions. The successful candidate will conduct independent research within the context of a DOE-funded project that focuses on the chemical/microbial processes controlling the fate of organic matter at the root-soil interface. Solid knowledge of soil mineralogy, organic matter chemistry, and environmental microbiology is expected. Good working knowledge in modern analytical techniques, specifically stable isotopes and synchrotron X-ray absorption spectroscopy, would be an advantage.
The successful candidate should hold a PhD degree in soil science, biogeochemistry, geosciences, ecology, microbiology, or a closely related field. He/she/they will conduct independent research, advise undergraduate and graduate students, and collaborate with other team members at the Marine Biological Laboratory, the Environmental Molecular Science Laboratory, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Interested candidates are asked to send their CV and a list of two potential references (including full contact addresses). These materials, and inquiries for further information, should be sent to Dr. Marco Keiluweit (keiluweit at umass.edu<mailto:keiluweit at umass.edu>).
