The Newingham Aridland Ecology Lab is searching for a postdoctoral researcher to work on projects related to soil, plant, and water responses to restoration treatments and climate. The primary project focuses on compost application on degraded, annual grass-dominated rangelands to determine impacts on plant communities; soil physical, chemical, and microbial properties; and surface runoff and erosion following compost application. The candidate will work with an interdisciplinary team of scientists from the Agricultural Research Service, University of Nevada - Reno, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Additional datasets are available for publishing, including sagebrush recruitment, mulch application, post-fire grazing, and post-fire seeding. Primary duties include analyzing existing small to large data sets, presenting at conferences, as well as writing manuscripts.

Application reviews will start on August 1, 2023, until the position is filled. A September/October start date is preferred but negotiable.
