Three-year Postdoctoral position in Modelling agricultural crops and carbon cycling under climate change

06.06.2017 - Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University

Science and Technology, Aarhus University Foulum, is looking for dedicated candidates for a three-year Postdoctoral position at the Department of Agroecology starting on August 15, 2017.

Research area
The postdoc study will involve use of crop-soil models for studying impacts of climate change on agricultural crops and cropping systems under climate change with particular emphasis on adaptation to climate change and implication for the soil carbon balance. This will involve parameterisation and testing of both dynamical and statistical models to describe the effects of crop and soil management and climate change on crop yield and carbon flows and stocks. Particular emphasis will be given to the assessment of how crops can be adapted to tolerate changes in extreme events and how cropping systems can be modified to enhance soil carbon stocks.

The Postdoc is also expected to participate in the day-to-day supervision of graduate students within the area of crop and soil carbon modelling and climate change, including teaching at PhD courses.

All applications must be made online and received by: 30.06.2017
