Position Announcement

Date: Jan 14, 2002

Position: M.S./Ph.D. Position available, research in Soil Respiration
and
Ecosystem Response to Climate Change, University of Illinois at Chicago
(in a new partnership with Columbia University Biosphere 2 Center),
Department of Biological Sciences, Ecology and Evolution Group, Chicago,
IL, starting Fall 2002. Apply before or on Friday January 26th.

Description:  The applicant should have interest in evaluating the
impacts
of climate change on ecosystem function. Particularly, we are interested
in understanding the effects of global change (atmospheric CO2,
temperature, deforestation or ozone) on soil respiration, its components
and the feedbacks of such effects on ecosystem function and climate.
This
is an opportunity to participate in a multidisciplinary collaborative
research within a group of renowned international investigators.
Research
involves multiple approaches relevant for ecosystem science, and a
thrust
will be placed in the use and development of stable isotope techniques
to
separate components of soil respiration. Significant part of the
research
will take place at Biosphere 2 Center, Oracle, AZ, and other field
locations. Opportunities to start in summer 2002 exist. Specific
information about the position can be requested from Miquel
Gonzalez-Meler
(mmeler at uic.edu) (312-3553928) and
