Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The USGS Earth Systems Biogeochemistry (ESB) Laboratory in Denver, Colorado
is recruiting a full-time, masters-level (GS-9), laboratory/field manager.
The ESB Lab conducts detailed studies of biogeochemical processes in
terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, with a particular emphasis on soils.
Our current work is centered on understanding regional scale controls on
soil organic matter cycling in the mountain and desert ecosystems of the
southwestern, US. We are looking for candidates with a strong background in
biogeochemistry and experience in both laboratory and field environments.
The incumbent will spend approximately 80% of their time managing the ESB
laboratory operations, including sample processing and analytical
workflows, as well as some data management and interpretation. The
remaining 20% of their time will be spent assisting with or overseeing
field studies and sample collection. This fieldwork will occur in remote
environments occasionally requiring hiking and camping in backcountry
conditions. Applicants with training in geospatial data analyses, GIS, or
the R programming environment are strongly encouraged to apply. For
questions about the work being conducted by the ESB Laboratory, please
contact Corey Lawrence (clawrence at usgs.gov) .
