Subject: Plant/Soil Postdoctoral Fellow at Berkeley Lab
To: Barbara Ballard <bballard at ucar.edu>

*Please post to the below working groups:*
*• Land Model*


*Plant/Soil Postdoctoral Fellow - 83451*
*Organization: CE-Climate & Ecosystems*

Berkeley Lab (LBNL, http://www.lbl.gov/) addresses the world’s most urgent
scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human
health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the
universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been
recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages
Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

*Position Summary:*
Berkeley Lab’s Climate & Ecosystems Division has an opening for a
Postdoctoral Fellow. The Postdoctoral Fellow will develop novel approaches
to study plant-root-soil interactions under dynamic and future climatic
conditions using a combination of below ground (geophysics, hydrology and
geochemistry) and above ground remote sensing technologies (e.g.
hyperspectral imaging). The Postdoctoral Fellow will work with a
multi-disciplinary group of scientists to improve the understanding of the
interactive feedback between plant growth, root development and changes of
soil and climatic conditions.

*What You Will Do:*
*• *Develop the scientific basis for an advanced plant root phenotyping
technology using geophysical methods.
• Develop an understanding of the link between below ground root
development/adaption and above ground plant growth and productivity under a
range of soil and climatic conditions.
• Present results and publish in peer-reviewed journals.
• Work in an integrated multi-disciplinary team environment.

*What Is Required:*
• Ph.D in Environmental Sciences, Geophysics, Hydrogeology, Biogeochemistry
or relevant related field.
• Outstanding record of original and high-quality research.
• Demonstrated experience and enthusiasm for understanding the dynamics of
the plant-soil biomes.
• Expertise in soil, plant or environmental sciences with a particular
emphasis on at least one of the following domains: near surface geophysics,
soil-plant interaction, lab and field scale soil biogeochemistry and
hydrology, and surface-subsurface interactions.

*Additional Desired Qualifications:*
*• *Familiarity with hydrogeophysical methods, geochemistry, soil physics
and mechanics, plant genetics and physiology, remote sensing, statistical
• An interest and spirit in working with a multi-disciplinary team.

*The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for
full consideration, please apply by close of business on April 28, 2017. *

*Notes: *
• This is a full time, 1 year, postdoctoral appointment with the
possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing
availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less
than 4 years paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral
positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
• Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
• This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining
• Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
• This position is contingent on the successful completion of a background
• Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1
Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

*How To Apply*
Apply directly online at and follow
the on-line instructions to complete the application process.
