Position 1

Postdoctoral or Assistant Professor Position in Ecosystem Modelling at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology, China

We are looking for one full-time postdoctoral fellow or assistant professor to study the response of phyllosphere microbiome to environmental changes (O3 pollution and N addition, or warming). This position is supported by a national funding project. The candidate will be involved in conducting related field and lab experiments, and applying for research grants, such as the National Natural Science Foundation of China, China Postdoctoral Fund, and Postdoctoral International exchange Plan.

 

The Ecological Effects of Environmental Change team of the Institute of Ecology, Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology is led by Professor Feng Zhaozhong, with an h index of 35. While the campus is in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, we have established experimental platforms of O3-FACE in Yanqing, Beijing and Jiangdu (Jiangsu province). Both O3-FACE and open-top chambers (OTCs) are used to study the influence of air pollution and climate change (such as surface ozone, nitrogen deposition, drought, warming and CO2) and multi-factor interactions on the structure, processes, and functions of poplar plantations and rice-wheat ecosystems. We are also interested in exploring the response, adaptation, and feedback of plants (including photosynthetic physiology, water physiology, secondary metabolites, etc.), plant-soil interaction, and ecosystem functions (such as carbon sequestration, nitrogen uptake, and water use). Protection of plants against ozone toxicity using innovative biological approaches, e.g. by inducing hormetic adaptive responses via various novel means, is also of interest.

 

The research fellow should be a highly motivated and hardworking. Preference will be given to candidates with solid experience in phyllosphere microbiology, as documented by international peer-reviewed publications. Applicants should be in good health (medical certificate from a hospital designated by the employer will be needed before official employment).

 

Minimum qualifications:

1)    A Ph.D. degree in Agriculture, Forestry, Microbiology, Biology Information, Ecology or other related fields.

2)    No more than five years from receiving the PhD degree.

3)    Under 35 years old.

4)    For PostDoc, 2 papers in SCI journal as first author. For Assist. Prof. 4 papers in SCI journal as first author. Applications with no publication record will not be considered.

 

The salary is 200,000-350,000 RMB per year, depending on the achievements and position, and pension insurance and other benefits are equal to permanent staff members.

 

Applicants should send to the email zhaozhong.feng@nuist.edu.cn (Prof. Feng) the following documents in a single file (preferably pdf), with the applicant’s first and family names for filename:

1)    A cover letter stating your professional experiences and how you satisfy the minimum qualifications (2 pages max).

2)    A curriculum vitae listing all the publications.

3)    A research statement summarizing research achievements and proposing upcoming research (2 pages max).

4)    Copies of three representative publications.

5)    Two recommendation letters (one has to be applicant’s Ph.D. supervisor).

 

Review of applications will start on 31 March, 2020. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
