Graduate Fellowship Description
This project will examine soil microbial processes of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus turnover in AAFCs unique long-term soil experiments.
Modern molecular and traditional methods in microbial community analysis and functional capacity (e.g. nucleic acid analysis, stable isotope probing, enzyme assays) will be employed to better understand interactions between microbial functioning and biogeochemical cycling of nutrients in soils with different management histories.
Qualifications: The successful applicant will be highly motivated with an interest in microbial ecology and soil biogeochemical cycling.
Applicants should have excellent oral and written communication skills and must have a degree in soil science, environmental science, microbiology or a related field.
Applicants must meet the requirements for acceptance into the M.Sc. or Ph.D. program in Soil Science at the University of Saskatchewan.
