Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
Department of Energy and Technology, Uppsala
Post-doctoral position
in Environmental Systems Analysis
of Fertilizer Use
SLU develops knowledge about our biological natural resources – everything that lives and grows. At SLU we conduct research, teach and inform about the opportunities, and possible risks incurred, when using our forests, landscapes, soils and animals in different ways.
SLU offers a broad spectrum of educational programmes and single subject courses. About 3 300 undergraduates and 800 postgraduate students are enrolled at SLU. A total of 3 200 people are employed at the University.
Main campuses are located at Alnarp, Skara, Ultuna and Umeå. Research and teaching activities are carried out throughout the country.
The Department of Energy and Technology educates and develops new knowledge within the fields of technology, bioenergy and biometry aiming at a sustainable use of biological resources. The department has about 40 employees and was formed on January 1, 2008 by merging of the Department of Bioenergy and the Department of Biometry and Engineering
The Environmental Engineering group educates and develops new knowledge on systems, technologies and processes for using the resources in waste and wastewater in a safe and resource efficient way. We are 1 Assoc Prof, 2 senior researchers and 2 PhD students (+2 PhD students and 2 Post Docs being recruited) and are active both in Sweden and internationally. For more information see our web page .
Job description: The task is to assess the environmental and resource consequences of using different fertilizers in ecological crop production. To preserve soil fertility, the plant nutrients removed by the crop need to be replaced. In conventional farming this is largely done with chemical fertilizers. In ecological farming, manure, green manure and raw phosphate are presently allowed, while e.g. human urine and super phosphate are not allowed. Your task will be to assess and compare the environmental and resource consequences of the use of a few of these different fertilizers. You will cooperate closely with and co-supervise a PhD student in the project.
Eligibility and qualifications: We are looking for a person with a strong background in LCA and environmental systems analysis who is eager to apply this knowledge to new challenges in a multi-disciplinary research team. Experience of LCA in agriculture is an advantage but not required.
Applicants should have a PhD degree.
The position is for one year with at least 80% of the time available for research. The start date is as soon as possible.
SLU is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
