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.
The Sierra Nevada Research Institute (SNRI) at UC Merced (http://snri.ucmerced.edu) is seeking two full-time researchers in the specialist track.
Recruitment Period through Monday, Jul 29, 2019 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)
Associate Specialist (https://aprecruit.ucmerced.edu/JPF00820; $58,000+ salaried)
Abstract deadline for Soil Science Society of America Annual Meeting 2019 – (San Diego, California. January 6th-9th) is approaching!
Please consider submitting to Legacy N: Biogeochemical, Hydrologic and Environmental Perspectives. This is an interdisciplinary session and a critical zone approach is encouraged.

The Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory (LCZO) will be located in Northeastern Puerto Rico in the USFS Luquillo Experimental Forest and at the USGS WEBB site. The multi-disciplinary team of geoscientists will address a set of specific hypotheses that are related to the following overarching questions: How do critical zone processes and the flow and transformations of materialdiffer in landscapes with contrasting bedrock but similar climates, land use, and geologic histories? What are the implications of these differences for the long term sustainability of water and soil resources? Specifically, the observatory will quantify and compare critical zone (CZ) processes in landforms and watersheds underlain by granodiorites and volcaniclastics. Previous research has demonstrated that these are some of the most rapidly eroding watersheds in the world. There are also dramatic, but poorly quantified, contrasts in CZ processes between areas underlain by these bedrocks. For more information visit our website at http://www.sas.upenn.edu/lczo/
