The Aquatic Nitrogen Fixation Research Coordination Network (ANF-RCN) is searching for a Research Associate. We will consider candidates at the Postdoctoral or post Masters level. The ANF-RCN is an NSF-funded project coordinated through a collaboration among Baylor University, Boston University, and Michigan Technological University and involving scientists from around the world studying nitrogen fixation along the freshwater-marine continuum.
The Research Associate will work closely with the ANF-RCN leadership team to coordinate working group activities, participate in data syntheses and lead publications on group activities. We are seeking a highly motivated individual with the flexibility to work independently and collaboratively and with strong organizational and leadership skills. The successful applicant will participate in Research Coordination Opportunities 1 (synthesis of rates, drivers and biodiversity of nitrogen fixation across aquatic habitats) and 2 (stoichiometric drivers and constraints of fixation) and in the planning of Research Coordination Opportunity 3 (scaling from genes to ecosystems). Interested individuals should inquire about the position by contacting the PIs via email: Wally Fulweiler, firstname.lastname@example.org; Amy Marcarelli, email@example.com; and Thad Scott, Thad_Scott@baylor.edu. Application instructions will be provided via email and applications will be reviewed as they are received.
We're hosting a session at AGU this December. Please come join us!

The PIs have been meeting regularly - stay tuned for our first paper currently in Review at Limnology and Oceanography Letters.
We had our first meeting with our Steering Committee and Senior Advisor Members in early June 2021. On zoom (of course!).
