of interested students.
TITLE: Postdoctoral Fellow
QUALIFICATIONS: Graduation from an accredited college or university with
a Ph.D. in Plant Physiological Ecology or related field. Experience in
the design, collection, analysis, and reporting of process-based studies
of root function is essential. Experience with studies of root dynamics,
including minirhizotron studies, as well as with the design of both
controlled environment studies and field studies is highly desirable. The
candidate must be a U.S. citizen in order to obtain non-restricted
security clearance to work within the Nevada Test Site (NTS) and must be
capable of extended field work under harsh desert conditions.
POSITION DESCRIPTION: The Postdoctoral Fellow will have primary
responsibility for the design, collection, analysis, and reporting of
controlled environment and field studies to determine the effects of
increased atmospheric CO2 on both the uptake kineti cs of plant roots and
on resource acquisition by Mojave Desert vegetation. The Postdoctoral
Fellow will also assist with measurements of fine root dynamics at the NTS
Desert FACE Facility (NDFF). NDFF is an experiment in the Mojave Desert
that utilizes Free Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) technology to simulate the
global atmospheric environment of the 21st century. The Postdoctoral
Fellow will also assist with the design, collection, analysis, and
reporting of supporting experiments and studies.
SALARY: Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
