Un resumen en inglés:

This position will focus on agricultural greenhouse gas sources and sinks, particularly the measurement and mitigation of gaseous emissions of nitrogen from pastoral soils at a range of spatial and temporal scales.

The applicant’s primary role would be to study the processes regulating gaseous emission of nitrogen and its mitigation through nitrogen transformation inhibitors and other management technologies. The applicant will play a lead role in conducting field and laboratory experiments of greenhouse gaseous fluxes, and related soil analysis to improve the robustness of emissions estimates and to develop and improve mitigation technologies.

To be successful in this position you will need a PhD in soil and/or environmental science, with a strong background in chemistry or physics, and in biochemistry or microbiology. Ideally, you will be familiar with nutrient transformations and greenhouse gas emissions and sinks. You should be familiar with a range of techniques, including some of the following: static chambers, automated chambers, micrometerology, gas chromatography and statistics. You will be expected to contribute to communication with stakeholders of this research through contract reports, seminars, publications in peer-reviewed national and international journals, and interactions with clients.

This role is full-time and will be based at our Palmerston North site. The term of employment is fixed-term for 3 years.
