Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 ( <email@example.com> ) with the subject line “postdoctoral position .” Review of applications will begin July 1, 2011 and continue until the position is filled.
