POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
ECOSYSTEM ECOLOGY

A post-doctoral research associate is needed on a multi-investigator,
NSF-funded project that examines how variation in the magnitude and
distribution of moisture pulses alters the structure and function of
arid land ecosystems.  The fieldwork for the project will be in
Canyonlands National Park and surrounding areas. The Arkansas research
group will address nitrogen fixation by biological soil crusts, plant
nitrogen acquisition, soil nitrogen and carbon transformations, and
gaseous nitrogen loss from crusts and soils.  Extensive measurements
will also be made of the isotopic composition of plants, soils, and
trace gasses.  The successful applicant must be willing to work at
desert field sites for extended periods.  A Ph.D. in ecology or related
field is required.  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:
