Postdoc position in plant ecophysiology. A postdoctoral position is 
available immediately to work on a NSF funded project. The candidate is 
expected to contribute to an ongoing research that focuses mechanisms of
nitrogen acquisition by plants and how those mechanisms might respond to
rising atmospheric CO2 concentration. Aspects of nitrogen assimilation
also being examined as potential  predictors of the whole-plant response
to high CO2.  The work includes both field and greenhouse components.
This project is in collaboration with six national FACE sites.
Therefore, field experiments will require some traveling. Previous
experience in 
ecophysiology and plant nitrogen uptake and assimilation is desirable.
Knowledge of  recent advances in high CO2 research, familiarity with lab
equipment such as elemental analyzer, HPLC, Gas-exchange as well as a
working knowledge of stable isotopes will be helpful. The position is
available for one year with the possibility of renewal. Salary range is
$28,000-$32,000. Interested persons should contact:
Dr. BassiriRad, Dept Bio Sci Univ of ILL @ Chicago, hormoz at uic.edu,
