We invite applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position to join a research team working on a three-year, NSERC funded project. The project aims to elucidate carbon and nutrient (N, P, Si, S, Fe) retention and elimination within critical reactive interfaces (e.g., the capillary fringe, riparian areas, hyporheic zone) in agro-ecosystems. The successful applicant will use a combination of data synthesis, field, laboratory, and computational approaches to improve our understanding of coupled biogeochemical cycling and physical processes acting at these reactive interfaces in Southern Ontario. The main tasks of the Postdoctoral Fellow will be to conduct laboratory and field experiments to investigate individual reactive interfaces focusing on their hydrological connectivity and biogeochemical functioning within the context of a watershed. There will be abundant opportunities to mentor and collaborate with graduate students on the project team and to undertake project management.

Applicants must have a specialization in biogeochemistry, hydrology, soil science or a related field. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated skills and experience in experimental work in biogeochemistry, hydrogeology, environmental sciences and engineering, or a related field.
