Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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. Additional information soon to be available at: <http://web.ubc.ca/okanagan/eesc/faculty/nichol.html>. Craig Nichol <Craig.Nichol@ubc.ca>
