Postdoc in Wetlands Ecology
A two-year postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Wetland Center to work with Professor Curtis Richardson on carbon cycling in coastal peatlands and GHG fluxes on restored riparian ecosystems in Duke Forest. Experience with field measurements of GHG fluxes from soil chambers as well as interest in learning Eddy Flux methods is recommended. The position will work with a team of scientists on existing experimental sites measuring carbon budgets, soil chemistry, water quality and hydrologic budgets as well as help in the development of new projects focused on the use of restored coastal peatlands for carbon credits. The position offers opportunities for gaining experience in the developing carbon market. The position offers a competitive salary based on experience as well as health benefits.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter (with contact information); a curriculum vitae; a one-page research statement that includes a description of past research accomplishments, plans for future research. Please include up to three representative publications; and three reference letters.
