Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
Department of Crop Production Ecology, Uppsala

Post-Doctoral position
in modelling climate change impacts on crop yield
variations over time, based on long term trials

SLU (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) develops learning and expertise in areas concerning our planet's living natural resources.

The Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences is the largest of the four faculties of SLU. Our area of activity covers a wide range of disciplines, spanning over agriculture, food and biotechnology to natural resources, environment and landscape planning.

The 18 departments at the faculty are organised in four clusters. Most of the departments and the faculty office are located in Uppsala, 65 km north of Stockholm, but important activities are also carried out in Umeå, Skara, and Grimsö.

SLU announces a vacancy for post-doctoral position in modelling climate change impacts on crop yield variations over time, based on long term trials, located at the Department of Crop Production Ecology, Uppsala.

Research environment: The Department of Crop Production Ecology conducts basic and applied research regarding biological, physical and chemical processes and management of relevance for crop physiology, cultivation systems, short rotation forestry and weed biology. The department is responsible for the national database of crop trials, and for the Ultuna climate station.

A two-year post-doctoral position is available at the department to conduct research within a project aiming at using process based crop modelling to identify climate variability effects on crop yields recorded in long term experiments, and to use this model development to assess effects of climate change scenarios. The project is a part of the SLU programme for environmental monitoring and assessment.

Job description: The successful candidate is expected to work in close collaboration with colleagues within a research team at the Department of Crop Production Ecology, SLU, contributing to the development of models and assessments of climate variation and climate change effects on crop yields. The work will involve model development and application, database management and publication in international scientific journals.

Eligibility: Applicants should have a PhD degree or a foreign degree deemed to be equivalent to a doctorate.

Qualifications: The applicant should have a sound understanding of the fundamental physical, chemical and biological processes that affect crop production and documented experience in using dynamic models in biological research. Experience from management of agronomic databases is highly desirable. The applicant should have proven good written communication skills in scientific English, and ability to collaborative work in research groups.

The position is full-time and will be granted for a period of two years, starting as soon as possible.

SLU is an equal opportunity employer.
