Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
JOB DESCRIPTION: We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Ecology at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Emory University. The goal is to develop a framework to quantify soil and ecosystem responses to multiple global change drivers (warming, drought, fire, etc.) under different land use and climate types using multi-scale and multi-disciplinary approaches. The postdoc will evaluate carbon (and nutrient) cycling at the hydrosphere-geosphere-biosphere-atmosphere interface and explore critical biogeochemical processes at the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Successful candidates may need to teach techniques to others, train, and supervise students and research staffs as needed. Positions are temporary appointments as a research trainee. The initial appointment is for one year, renewal expected if progress is satisfactory and funds are available. Appointments cannot exceed five years.
QUALIFICATIONS: Suitable applicants will hold a doctoral degree in terrestrial or aquatic biogeochemistry, ecology, ecosystem science, soil science, geochemistry, biology, microbiology, or related disciplines. This position requires a highly motivated, organized, and creative individual with a demonstrated ability to carry out both independent and collaborative research. Effective time-management and good communication (written and oral) skills are essential attributes of a successful candidate.
biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology of terrestrial/aquatic and/or natural/managed systems. Candidates with proficiency in programming languages (e.g., R, Python, MATLAB, Fortran) will be given preferences. Interests in developing ideas for complementary projects will be a plus. Salary will commensurate with NIH salary guidelines.
Interested candidates should apply via the online application form and submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and list of three references.
