Postdoctoral research associate
Soil trace gas isofluxes

We seek a creative, highly motivated postdoctoral associate to develop independent research efforts focused on the isotopic composition of trace gas fluxes from soils. This is a unique opportunity with flexible objectives that allow the researcher to pursue project(s) of shared interest. The postdoctoral researcher would be affiliated with the Stable Isotopes for Biosphere Science laboratory in a renovated space and have access to a range of stable isotope tools ( She or he would work with highly collaborative group of faculty and other researchers associated with the SIBS laboratory. Successful candidates will have experience in soil trace gas fluxes or trace gas isotope geochemistry and an interest in N or C biogeochemistry. Familiarity with N2O isotopomers in particular would be an advantage. Candidates must hold a PhD by the start of the position. Salary will be commensurate with experience and includes a competitive benefits package. Funding is initially available to support two years of work.
