Post-Doctoral Position in Dryland Biogeochemical Research at University of Texas, El Paso

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) 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 dryland ecosystems. The primary goal for this position will be an increased understanding of nutrient cycling (with particular focus on phosphorus) in these carbonate rich dryland soils.

A postdoc position on ecosystem-atmosphere carbon exchange at UTEP

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.
