Postdoctoral position: Greenhouse Gas Fluxes at the Soil Surface
UBC Okanagan located in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada has support
for a
postdoctoral position to start immediately. The project will examine the
long
-term greenhouse gas fluxes (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide)
from three
ongoing research trials of perennial woody crops (grape, raspberry,
apple)
in response to varying irrigation and fertilization practices. The field
sites
are located in Summerland British Columbia, and in the Fraser Valley
near
Abbotsford, British Columbia, at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada field
stations. This research is a collaboration involving researchers at UBC
Okanagan (Craig Nichol, Melanie Jones, Louise Nelson), Landcare in New
Zealand
(Peter Millard, David Whitehead, John Hunt), and at Agriculture and
Agri-Food
Canada  (Denise Neilsen, Tom Forge). Experience measuring the fluxes of
soil
gases is required and direct experience in the field and laboratory
measurement
of nitrous oxide fluxes is preferred.  Additional preferred skills
include:
experience with a variety of soils instrumentation (eg: soil matric
suction
sensors, TDR, tensiometers); laboratory measurement of gases using gas
chromatography; datalogger systems (eg: Campbell Scientific); and
computer
programming (Matlab, Labview). A valid, standard vehicle drivers license
is
required for the job, and the candidate must be able to do regular trips
to
the field sites.

The position is currently funded for 15 months by the Agricultural
Greenhouse
Gases Program administered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, but may
be
extended longer.

To apply send a resume to Craig Nichol [<Craig.Nichol@UBC.ca>].
Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
