Postdoctoral Research Associate in Plant invasions and climate change at the University of Florida, Gainesville to join their research team in investigating the interactive effects of non-native plant invasion and climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem processes. Specifically, they are using a large factorial common garden experiment and an invasion removal study across a gradient of field sites in north Florida to evaluate how Imperata cylindrica (cogongrass) and drought affect longleaf pine establishment and performance, herbaceous plant and soil microbial community diversity and composition, and arthropod communities. In addition, we are investigating effects of invasion and drought on ecosystem processes, including N and C cycling (using 13C isotope labeling).

The Roberts Lab of Ecosystem Ecology and Biogeochemistry at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) is seeking a research
assistant in Wetland Biogeochemistry to participate in a series of field/laboratory and manipulative experiments studying the effects of the Macondo Oil Spill on coastal marsh ecosystems. The assistant will join a large, multi-institution team of researchers in the Coastal Waters Consortium, a BP GoMRI-funded project studying the impacts of the oil spill and future spills on salt marshes and coastal environments. The position is associated with a collaborative subproject on wetland biogeochemistry and microbial ecology led by Drs. Brian Roberts (LUMCON), Anne Giblin (Marine Biological Laboratory), and Anne Bernhard (Connecticut College). The objectives of the project are to 1) improve our understanding of temporal and spatial patterns in marsh biogeochemical process rates, associated microbial communities, and factors regulating these communities and rates; and 2) evaluate the impact of and recovery from oil exposure on marsh biogeochemical processes and associated microbial communities. The research assistant will support the field and laboratory analytical activities designed to accomplish these objectives. The position will be based at LUMCON and will require extensive field and laboratory work. This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with top scientists from around the United States in a large, interdisciplinary research project of great importance to the US Gulf Coast and other ecosystems impacted by oil-related activities.

The University of Minnesota Dept. of Forest and Natural Resource Management is seeking an undergraduate student to assist on a project assessing the impact of strategies to mitigate the impacts of emerald ash borer on forest structure and function in black ash dominated wetlands in northern Minnesota.  A joint effort of the University of Minnesota, University of Vermont, and USFS Northern Research Station, this project uses a large-scale manipulative field experiment to assess the response of vegetation communities and hydrology to black ash mortality due to EAB and forest harvesting treatments.
