Post-Doctoral Research Associate – University of Colorado Boulder – Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
A two-year post-doctoral research associate position will be available
in Nichole Barger’s lab at the University of Colorado – Boulder. The
successful candidate will work on a newly funded project to examine
plant and soil responses to biological soil crust restoration. The
post-doctoral research associate will oversee field research at Hill Air
Force Base in the Great Basin and Jornada Experimental Range in the
Chihuahuan Desert. This work will occur in close collaboration with an
interdisciplinary team of scientists who specialize in soil microbiology
(Ferran Garcia-Pichel, Arizona State University), soil ecology (Matthew
Bowker, Northern Arizona University and Jayne Belnap USGS), ecosystem
ecology (Sasha Reed, USG) and soil science (Mike Duniway, USGS). We are
seeking a highly motivated and energetic applicant with specialties in
ecosystem ecology/biogeochemistry, plant ecology, or soil ecology.
Expertise in aridland ecology is a plus. The start date is flexible
ranging from December 2014 through February 2015. If you are interested
please send a brief letter of interest and a current CV to Nichole
Barger at email@example.com.
A networking resource devoted to biological soil crusts and the researchers who study them. We will provide a means for international scientists to communicate, share their research, share important news and announcements, ask questions and find collaborators. We will also provide a space for informal writing on research, opinion, and ideas (now seeking posters!).
