Post-doc opportunity: UCD School of Agriculture & Food Science, University College Dublin

  • News

This is a temporary contract position funded by international collaborative project MAPSERS-C. This project aims to assess the use of process- based models (e.g. ECOSSE & DNDC) to predict carbon emissions from agriculturally used peat soils, parameterising them to reflect the peat characteristics and range of management intensities representative of Ireland and New Zealand. Scientific knowledge of these soils and data obtained through in-situ carbon (CO2 & CH4) emissions measurement leveraging eddy covariance (EC) tower networks in both countries (NASCO and OzFlux) will be used to validate and test the model predictions of carbon dynamics, improving our understanding of key drivers of emissions (particularly, water table management and inter-annual climatic variability). This research is funded by DAFM in the framework of the Joint Research Call between Ireland and New Zealand on strategies, technologies and novel systems to reduce and account for greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture ruminant production systems.

This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
