A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the USDA Forest
Service Canopy Processes in Temperate Mesic Forests research team based in
Corvallis, Oregon.  The candidate will participate in research on the
physiology of water utilization in forest trees.  Examples of research
topics currently being addressed by the team include hydraulic
redistribution of soil water by tree roots, how water utilization scales
with tree size within species and among different species, functional
consequences of stem water storage, and functional consequences of changes
in tree hydraulic architecture during growth and as a result of mistletoe
infection.  Much of the team's research is done in collaboration with
investigators at Oregon State University, the Environmental Protection
Agency and the University of Washington.  Although the position is based at
the Forestry Sciences Laboratory on the OSU campus in Corvallis, field
research is conducted mainly at the Wind River Canopy Crane Facility in
southern Washington and at sites in the Oregon Cascade Mountains.  A recent
Ph.D. in plant physiology, ecophysiology or related field is required and an
interest in conducting and integrating research at multiple scales is highly
desirable.  Applicants must have well-developed organizational skills to
handle complicated logistics of fieldwork in remote locations, a track
record of peer-reviewed scientific publication, and a demonstrated facility
for teamwork and interaction.  The position is available January 1, 2002,
for a minimum of 13 months and maximum of 48 months and will be filled at
the U.S. Government GS-11 level.  Applications will be accepted until the
position is filled.  Candidates should send their curriculum vitae and
contact information for three references to Frederick Meinzer, USDA Forest
Service, Forestry Sciences Laboratory, 3200 SW Jefferson Way, Corvallis, OR
97331; fmeinzer at fs.fed.us.
