A POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH position in microbial ecology will be available 
in early 1996 in the laboratory of Cheryl Kuske, Genomics and Structural 
Biology Group, Life Sciences Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory.  
An interdisciplinary group at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los 
Alamos, NM) and Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff, AZ) is 
investigating the genetic adaptation of a pinyon-juniper ecosystem in 
response to climate change. The postdoctoral position is to expand 
characterization of pinyon rhizosphere microorganism communities using 
molecular techniques, and to investigate the effects of environmental 
stress on interactions between the tree and its associated rhizosphere 
bacteria and ectomycorrhizal fungi.

Candidates should have research experience in soil microbiology, and in 
application of molecular techniques to microbial ecology.  Applicants 
must have received their Ph.D. within the past 2-1/2 years, and be 
willing to apply for additional fellowship funding through Los Alamos 
National Laboratory. 

Salaries range from $40,000 to $44,000 per year.  Appointees receive
employee benefits including incoming travel and moving expenses.

Los Alamos National Laboratory is located 35 miles from Santa Fe in the
mountains of northern New Mexico.  The area is attractive for its 
history,culture, scenic beauty and its many outstanding outdoor 
recreation opportunities, including alpine and nordic skiing, hiking, 
rock climbing,golfing, and biking.
