Postdoctoral Researcher

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), in association with Boise State University, and the U.S.D.A. Agricultural Research Service (ARS), is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on a recently funded National Science Foundation 'Critical Zone Thematic Cluster' grant to study carbon fluxes, ecohydrology, and nutrient availability in the carbonate-dominated soils of dryland ecosystems. The project has sites in Texas, New Mexico, and Idaho. While funded through UTEP, this position is located in Boise, Idaho and focused on the scientific field operations at the Idaho sites, including the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed and the Northwest Irrigation and Soils Research site in Kimberly, Idaho. We are specifically looking for a candidate who has experience working with eddy covariance towers and the data that they generate. Other useful areas of interest include soil science, soil biogeochemistry, knowledge of dryland ecosystem structure and function, and ecosystem-atmosphere gas exchange techniques. We seek a colleague who is interested in collaborative engagement with scientists and students and also in education and outreach activities. Up to four years of funding is available. We will begin to review applications on Nov 15th but the position is open until filled. The target start date for the position is January 4, 2021. For more information, please email Anthony Darrouzet-Nardi (ajdarrouzetnardi@utep.edu), and copy Lixin Jin (ljin2@utep.edu), Jennifer Pierce (jenpierce@boisestate.edu), and Gerald Flerchinger (gerald.flerchinger@usda.gov).
