Postdoc Position in Soil Biogeochemistry
The group Biogeochemistry of Forest Soils in the Department of Soil and Environment at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is looking for a postdoc to explore the C:N:P:S stoichiometry of organic matter in soils of the Swedish Forest Soil Inventory and several long-term field experiments. The results of this work will be important for a better understanding of soil organic matter stabilization and storage in soils.
The postdoc will explore the factors that control the C:N:P:S stoichiometry of soil organic matter. For this purpose, she/he will quantify the organic matter C:N:P:S ratio in soils of the Swedish Forest Soil Inventory and several long-term experiments. In addition, she/he will use fractionation techniques to investigate specifically the C:N:P:S ratio of the mineral-associated soil organic matter fractions. Organic matter of selected samples can be further analyzed using NMR. The results of the soil chemical analyses will be statistically analyzed together with additional data on climate, soil chemical properties and vegetation that are already available.
