Examples include, studies of plant carbon or nitrogen dynamics utilizing radioactive 11C or 13N, micronutrient assimilation and/or exchange between plants, soil, and microorganisms, as well as metabolic flux and regulation using isotope ratio analyses. Applications at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged.
