PostDoc in Soil Nutrient Cycling: Dynamics of soil organic matter

  • Övrigt


A postdoc position in dynamics of soil organic matter is available at the Department of Soil & Environment. The Department conducts research, environmental assessment work and education in soil science and sustainable use. The majority of the department’s activities and employees are located in the Soil-Water-Environment building on the SLU Ultuna campus in Uppsala, and there is a research group with a field research station situated in Skara. Duties: We are looking for a highly motivated individual to join and develop our research focusing on the relationship between diffusion and organic matter dynamics in soils. The holder of the position is expected to • setup and use the laboratory equipment (microdialysis) for measuring diffusion of organic material at soil pore scale. • develop our research on the relationship between pore scale diffusional processes and dynamics of soil organic matter. More specifically, the holder should put in place a suite of experiments using microdialysis and stable isotopes to further our understanding of how diffusion constrains CO2 emissions from soil. • develop a bioenergetics based soil organic matter model, in collaboration with other researchers. The position is linked to several ongoing projects but there is a clear scope for developing your own research ideas in cooperation with your mentor and other scientists at SLU. Qualifications: The candidate • shall have a Ph D degree in a topic that is relevant for the position. • shall have documented experience in either the use of stable isotopic analysis of greenhouse gases OR the measurement of solute diffusion in soils. • has an appreciation of how soil structure affects biological processes. • should have a documented capability to carry out independent research and skills in writing scientific publications. • should have good ability in English, both orally and written. • should have an ability to work in a team and independently, showing an ability to take initiatives and organizational skills are a distinct advantage. Postdoctoral appointments are career‐developing positions for junior researchers, and we therefore are primarily looking for candidates with a doctoral degree that is three years old at most. Applications must be written in English and contain (1) CV with full publication list, (2) copies of the two most important publications, (3) a description of past research , current research interests, and a description of the research you want to develop further (max 3 A4 pages), and (4) proof of Ph D exam. The names and contact information for at least two referee persons should be provided. Place of work: Uppsala Form of employment: Temporary employment, 24 months Extent: 100% Starting date: According to agreement.
