4.Postdoctoral Research Associate, microbial dynamics and metal mobility

Applications are invited for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral research position at the University of Idaho to evaluate the microbial and metal response of mining-impacted sediments to an input of potentially new detrital organic matter. The position will be supervised by Profs.

The postdoctoral associate will work in collaboration with all supervising professors to collect benthic sediment samples from Lake Coeur d’Alene and implement benchtop anaerobic experiments for evaluating porewater and sediment alteration with simulation of sediment carbon input from an algal bloom. This project is in response to proposed remediation of upstream legacy mining impacts and likely changes in ecosystem dynamics, which has the potential to alter microbial dynamics and metal mobility of mining-related metals (Cd, Pb, Mn, and Zn) in benthic sediments. The postdoctoral associate will be responsible for coordinating all experiment procedures from collection of sediments, to benchtop experiment construction, to weekly sample collection and processing, to post-experiment sediment analyses.

7. Graduate Student

Position summary:

Fully funded graduate student positions (2 PhDs, 1 Masters) are available to participate in a NASA funded project (Carbon Cycle Program) developing remote sensing based GPP products for estimating coastal marsh blue carbon across the Southeastern United States. This project involves data synthesis of remotely sensed data with eddy covariance flux tower products, biomass measurements, and other biophysical coastal marsh parameters. This work involves geospatial analysis of near-surface and satellite data sets (primarily MODIS), as well as field campaigns that will assess the carbon budgets for different coastal landscapes using portable eddy covariance towers, estimation of plant photosynthesis rates, and intensive field sampling.

Responsibilities:

Graduate students will assist with maintaining and analyzing data from multiple eddy covariance flux towers. This includes comparisons of eddy covariance measurements with other instruments at the sites, satellite derived products, and data management. Students also will travel monthly to remote coastal marsh sites to maintain equipment, deploy experiments and participate in field data collection.

Required qualifications:

Candidates must have proven abilities to conduct independent research and to work as part of a scientific team. Experience in data analysis, strong quantitative skills and the ability to work in a marsh environment are also required. Experience in or an interest in learning R or Python also are required. Additional skills in interpretation and synthesis of eddy covariance data, primary productivity and photosynthesis modeling also would be helpful. A strong background in statistics and plant or landscape ecology also are suggested, but the drive and willingness to learn these skills is acceptable.
