Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Focus: permafrost carbon isotope biogeochemistry (instrumentation, data analysis, and modeling)
Institutions: Ecology & Evol. Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Start Date: Fall 2013/Spring 2014
We seek a creative post-doctoral scientist with strong background in instrumentation, ecosystem biogeochemistry, or modeling to join an interdisciplinary team working to understand the dynamics of methane, carbon, and associated microbial ecology of an arctic permafrost wetland that is being transformed by global climate change. The candidate will manage instrumentation and interpretation of resultant data from cutting edge instrumentation to measure the isotopic composition of fluxes and concentrations of CH4 and CO2 in the field, and collaborate with a team studying the molecular microbial ecology (metagenomics and metatranscriptomics) of methane and carbon cycle biogeochemistry. Facility with using a mathematical modeling framework to interpret field observations is desirable.
The science goals of this DOE and NSF funded project are to discover how microbial community composition and metabolism scale to the ecosystem biogeochemistry of CH4 and CO2, and to learn how these relations are affected by a changing climate.
The position is based at University Arizona, but will involve time commitments in the experimental field site in northern Sweden. This position provides exceptional opportunities to learn new techniques and to make major scientific contributions to problems of both scientific and societal interest using cutting-edge technology (see web page below for more project details). This is an interdisciplinary research program, and we do not expect candidates to be familiar with all of the relevant methods, but a strong science background relevant to isotope biogeochemistry, including field deployment of instrumentation, and interpretation of data within a mathematical modeling framework, is desired.
Competitive salary and benefits are provided; the University of Arizona is an equal-opportunity employer.
Direct questions about the project to: Dr. Scott Saleska, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona (firstname.lastname@example.org).
