A three-year post-doctoral position is available spring or early-summer 1999 on
a multi-investigator, NSF-funded project that examines the effects of elevated
carbon dioxide on ecosystem dynamics in the Mojave Desert. The successful
applicant must be willing to work at desert field sites in a collaborative
research environment. The position will be based at the University of Arkansas
and fieldwork will be at the Nevada Desert FACE Facility (NDFF). Housing will
be provided at the field site. The Arkansas research group will address the
effects of elevated carbon dioxide on nitrogen fixation by biological soil
crusts, soil nitrogen transformations and stable isotope composition, and
gaseous nitrogen loss. The applicant will join a research group addressing C
and N cycling in hot and cold desert ecosystems, and mechanisms controlling
plant and soil nitrogen isotope composition. The successful applicant will get
extensive training and make use of a new stable isotope facility in Biological
Sciences. A Ph.D. in ecology or related field is required by the starting date.
Knowledge and experience with stable isotopes, soil N and C, or trace gas
analysis is desirable. To apply please send an application letter with research
interests and experience, CV, reprints, and names, addresses, and E-mail
addresses of three references to Dr. R. Dave Evans, Department of Biological
Sciences, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR 72701. Phone: 501-575-7093.
