The Neumann Lab is seeking a research assistant to participate in an exciting project investigating the fine-scale dynamics of methylmercury production in soil surrounding rice roots (i.e., the rice rhizosphere). Methylmercury (MeHg) is a bioaccumulative and neurotoxic chemical. Methylmercury production in the rhizosphere affects MeHg concentrations in rice grain, and thus impacts human health. The goal of the project is to gain knowledge needed to inform agricultural strategies that minimize MeHg contamination of rice grain.
