We're recruiting a postdoc for a DOE-funded project on the geochemistry and microbial ecology of thawing permafrost in Svalbard. The ideal candidate will be responsible for creating a microbially-explicit model of greenhouse gas production, to be used with field data and data from experimentally-thawed permafrost cores. Fieldwork in Svalbard is a possibility, but not a requirement. The ideal candidate will be capable of doing modeling work with a high degree of independence, and will be interested in learning more about experimental microbial ecology and biogeochemistry. The candidate will formally mentored by Andrew Steen, will be advised on modeling issues by Dr. James Bradley of Queen Mary University - London, and will interface with the quantitative biology group led by Dr. David Talmy at UT-Knoxville.
The appointment will be for approximately 2.5 years, depending on start date.
