Post-Doctoral Researcher: Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry

The Department of Land, Air and Water Resources at the University of California Davis is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to conduct innovative studies on terrestrial carbon and nitrogen cycling. The research will focus on the origin, transport, and stabilization of soil organic matter using stable isotopes.  Areas of study include greenhouse gases, dissolved organic carbon, quantification of components of soil respiration and turnover of soil carbon and nitrogen pools.  The position involves developing techniques in compound specific Pyrolysis Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry-Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometery, HPLC-IRMS, and differential scanning calorimetry-IRMS. QUALIFICATIONS: Recent Ph.D. in one of the following fields: Soil Science, Plant Science, Plant Physiology, Ecology, Geology or related discipline is required.  Knowledge in the areas of advanced analytical stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry, biogeochemistry, soil chemistry, plant physiology or related field is highly desirable. The appointment is for 2 years. Submit cover letter, CV and list of 3 references to, Professor William Horwath (wrhorwath@ucdavis.edu) before August 20, 2010 or until position is filled.
