Postdoctoral Research Associate: University of Michigan
Microbial Ecology and Plant Physiology
A postdoctoral research position is available immediately to study the contribution of organic N via mycorrhizal fungi on plant growth response to elevated atmospheric CO2. Work will consist of a series of field experiments and data analyses aimed at providing novel insight into variation in plant N uptake and response to eCO2.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in microbial ecology, soil microbiology, biogeochemistry, or closely related field. Expertise with molecular techniques to investigate microbial community composition and function is required. The initial appointment period will be for 1 year with the potential of renewal.
Applicants should email a cover letter describing research experience and goals, a curriculum vitae, reprints, and the names and addresses of three references to Drs. Inés Ibáñez (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Donald R. Zak (email@example.com), School for Environment and Sustainability, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
