Postdoc – Nitrous oxide flux from grazed pastures

We have a position (up to 2.5 years) available for a postdoctoral fellow who will be responsible for measuring nitrous oxide fluxes from grazed pastures systems based at the University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. We will be purchasing equipment that allows eddy covariance measurements of nitrous oxide and the successful candidate will help install and maintain the equipment, collect data, interpret and write papers in this newly-developing field of research.  You will be part of a team measuring carbon dioxide and water fluxes from pastures and wetlands. Our goal is to find management practices that decrease our greenhouse gas burden on the atmosphere while maintaining production.

Further details about the team and our research can be found at The full position description can be viewed at the University of Waikato, vacancy page: (position 350058) where applications should also be made.
