Pine-Switch Grass & Forest Stress Postdoctoral Research Scholar at NC State

Water cycling in intercropped pine-switch grass for bioenergy and forest stress monitoringWe are seeking a postdoctoral scholar to study water cycling in an experimental pine-switchgrass intercropping system (60% effort) and manage a geographically distributed forest stress monitoring network (40% effort). For the pine-switch grass project, the objective is to develop a mechanistic understanding of resource use, sustainability, and competitive interactions between the C3 overstory trees and C4 understory grass. For the forest stress monitoring project, the focus will be on automated monitoring of dominant overstory tree sap flux in relation to meteorological variables at 12 sites across the eastern U.S. to determine climatic conditions inducing physiological stress.
