Postdoc and PhD student positions at SLU Uppsala, Sweden - crop-environment interactions under changing climates
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), , Sweden
Apply before: 22 August 2022

I have a postdoc position and a PhD student position open in my group at the Department of Crop Production Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, in Uppsala, Sweden. The focus is on identifying management solutions that minimize the negative environmental and climate impacts of agriculture, and at the same make it robust to climate change. For the postdoc, we explicitly search for candidates with mechanistic modelling expertise, whereas data collation and analyses via statistical models will be central for the PhD project. More information below.

I would be grateful if you could forward these openings to qualified and potentially interested candidates, and circulate them within your network.

Thanks and best regards,

Postdoc in modelling plant-environment and soil-plant interactions (deadline for applications Sep 15th, 2022)

We are looking for candidates interested in developing, evaluating, and applying mathematical models based on ecological and ecophysiological mechanisms to explore the tradeoffs between sustainability and reduced vulnerability to climate change, as part of an exciting project assessing the potential of perennial grain crops.

PhD position in crop production adaptations to climate change (deadline for applications Aug 22nd, 2022)

We are looking for candidates interested in digging into a wide range of land-use, crop yield, and climatic data and quantifying how climatic conditions and crop and landscape diversity affect the reliability of crop yields in the face of more variable and extreme climatic conditions, via statistical and stochastic models. This is a fully funded 4-yr PhD project.

For more information and instructions on how to apply see the SLU job vacancies webpages.
