An exciting opportunity has become available for an MSc level (minimum) or post-doctoral candidate with an interest in exploring Natural World insights & translating into financial outcomes. The aim is to develop and embed a supply and demand modelling capability to enable us to enhance our market intelligence for different agricultural crop commodities. The candidate will help develop a suite of predictive models using multiple supply side data sources (eg. USDA acreage & crop progress/condition reports, regional production data and export data together with remotely sensed data to assess acreage and yield expectations) and key data/market intelligence regarding demand for specific crop commodities. A particular goal is to identify relationships that exist between remote sensed data and ground data to enable large-scale yield models to be created using these proxies (ultimately) for all global crop areas where ground data may be limited. This position is a 36 month fixed term contract, with a £2k pa dedicated training budget tailored towards your personal development. Management training will be provided (worth c. £5-7k.). Extensive travel opportunities also available.
