POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE

PLANT PHYSIOLOGICAL ECOLOGY / ECOSYSTEM ECOLOGY

A post-doctoral research associate is needed on a multi-investigator,
NSF-funded project that examines how variation in the magnitude and
distribution of moisture pulses alters the structure and function of arid
land ecosystems.  The fieldwork for the project will be in Canyonlands
National Park and surrounding areas. The Arkansas research group will
address nitrogen fixation by biological soil crusts, plant nitrogen
acquisition, soil nitrogen and carbon transformations, and gaseous nitrogen
loss from crusts and soils.  Extensive measurements will also be made of the
isotopic composition of plants, soils, and trace gasses.  The successful
applicant must be willing to work at desert field sites for extended
periods.  A Ph.D. in ecology or related field is required.  Knowledge and
experience with stable isotopes, soil N and C, or trace gas analysis is
desirable.

To apply please send an application letter with research interests and
experience, CV, reprints, and names, addresses, and E-mail addresses of
three references to Dr. R. Dave Evans, Department of Biological Sciences,
University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR  72701.  Phone: 501-575-7093.
