I have a position open for a postdoc in soil biogeochemistry at the
University of New Hampshire to study root-derived carbon dynamics. The
individual in this position will be using isotopic approaches to examine the
fate of root carbon in biofuel cropping systems and be tied into a broad
network of scientists involved with the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research
Center. Along with using isotopes to track the fate of labeled roots through
different soil organic matter pools, there are opportunities in this
position to learn advanced methods in soil organic matter chemical analysis,
examine arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities and the fate of
rhizodeposits, and identify the microbial community processes that transform
and stabilize root C. Candidates are expected to be highly motivated,
possess strong oral and written communication skills, and have demonstrated
ability to publish quality papers. Strong preference will be given to
candidates with experience in relevant areas, which could include: 1)
isotopic approaches to studying soil carbon dynamics; 2) soil organic matter
chemical characterization; and 3) microbial carbon cycling.
To apply please send your CV with the names of three references and a short
statement of interest (~1 page) to Stuart Grandy (email@example.com).

anytime between now and early 2014. Applications will be considered until
October 18, 2013 or until the position is filled.
