Offer Description

Denitrification is a multi-step process associated with both the production and consumption of the potent greenhouse gas N2 O. Studying how organisms with the ability to complete different or similar steps of the process provides an interesting platform for evaluating multispecies interactions. The roles of the postdoc will be to generate data on the drivers and consequences of variation in the denitrification trait within soil communities by designing and implementing microcosm experiments and completing single cell RNA sequencing, and to analyse and publish the resultant data.
