Postdoctoral researcher, McGill University, Canada

This position is funded for a minimum of 2 years and is focused on understanding how increasing crop diversity influences the response of soil organic matter to reduced and increased precipitation. We will consider mechanisms related to soil organic matter retention and destabilization, distribution within the soil profile, and across soil organic matter molecular and functional pools. The candidate should have a particular interest in learning methods in soil organic molecular chemistry such as pyrolysis GC/MS. The candidate will be part of a larger team working within the 2 crop diversity by precipitation DART field trial and will be expected to collaborate with
other PhD students and project co-PIs. Opportunities in outreach and engagement,
networking, and career development will be supported. Successful candidates should
have a strong interest soil carbon and soil chemistry. Experience with stable isotopes
and applying GC/MS techniques is a benefit. Start date: Summer 2022 but flexible. Deadline: NA, See link for details
