Postdoctoral Position in Terrestrial Paleoenvironment and Biogeochemistry.

A postdoctoral position is available to join a growing research group
focused on interactions between biogeochemistry, paleoclimates, and
climate change. The primary responsibility associated with this position
is to conduct independent research on the biogeochemical consequences of
Holocene climate change at the borders between grassland and forested
ecosystems in Kansas and central North America. The minimum
qualification is a doctoral degree in a relevant ecological, Earth, or
environmental science. The ideal candidate would have a strong
familiarity with Quaternary paleoecological data, skills in laboratory
analysis of sediment, knowledge of nutrient cycling (particularly
nitrogen), the implications of environmental change on ecosystem
services, and experience with multivariate statistical methods.
Experience with GIS, ecosystem models, and/or elemental analysis is also
desirable. Specific duties include acquisition and analysis of
paleoenvironmental data, presentation of research findings at
professional meetings, collaboration with faculty, preparation of
manuscripts, and mentoring and collaboration with diverse undergraduate
and graduate students. This position will be based at the Department of
Geography at Kansas State University.

The position is for one year with the possibility of renewal. Salary is
commensurate with experience and qualifications; benefits are included.
To apply, applicants should send a CV, a cover letter including future
research and career goals, and the names and contact information for
three professional references as a single pdf to Dr. Kendra McLauchlan (
<> ) with the subject line “postdoctoral position .”
Review of applications will begin July 1, 2011 and continue until the
position is filled. The start date is negotiable. A background check is
required. Kansas State University is an equal opportunity employer that
actively seeks diversity among its employees.
