University of Edinburgh Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Tropical Hydro-Ecological Modelling Vacancy Ref: : 038510 Closing Date : 08-Feb-2017 Contact Person : Emma Blacklock Contact Number : 0131 650 5851 Contact Email : Emma.Blacklock@ed.ac.uk We are looking for a postdoctoral research associate to research the effects of climate variation on crop yield and forest production across Africa. The work is funded by two research projects. The first is the UK Space Agency funded research project, Forests 2020. This is a large consortium project involving partners from six tropical forest countries (Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Kenya, Indonesia and Colombia) with the aim of dramatically improving the uptake and usefulness of satellite data products in these countries. The second is a Royal Society challenge grant, with the aim to develop a soil moisture and crop yield diagnostic system for sub-Saharan Africa. This PRDA will focus on analysing and modelling the effects of climate and soil moisture on crop and forest water use, photosynthesis and production. Competitive candidates will have experience in hydrological and/or biogeochemical modelling, model-data fusion, well developed numerical analytical skills, and a proven capacity to publish scientific outputs. The appointee will combine earth observations, field data and modelling to determine the current and future states of tropical production and plant growth, and their controlling processes. We have a well-developed model-data fusion system that will be used to meet project objectives. This post is full time, fixed term for 24 months and is available from 01 April 2017; or as soon as possible thereafter.
