We seek to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on an ambitious project to develop and demonstrate a data-driven framework to support farmers and other stakeholders to access insights to improve outputs while lowering costs and environmental impacts like carbon emissions. This initiative will emphasize data accessibility, both for on-farm data capture and by identifying opportunities to join farm data with remote sensing information, biodiversity monitoring, and other data sources. This post has some flexibility in the scope for the successful candidate to pursue their own strengths or interests within the aims of the post and research group.  The position would be suitable for someone with strong quantitative experience and a subject-relevant background and interest in crop modelling, carbon modelling, conservation impacts, biodiversity monitoring, or related fields, and an interest in applying data science tools within a scientific agriculture and environmental framework.
