We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our team for a research project focused on assessing soil compaction risks in Sweden under both current and future climate conditions.
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher with a strong interest in soil compaction and soil-crop modelling. The research aims to evaluate spatial and temporal variations in soil compaction risks across diverse cropping areas in Sweden for current and future climates. The project involves integrating field and laboratory measurements with modeling framework. The selected researcher will be responsible for modeling tasks, contribute to the reporting and publication of research findings, and engage in effective communication with stakeholders, including farmers and agricultural advisors. The successful candidate will be a member of the Soil Mechanics and Management research group at SLU in Uppsala.
Temporary employment 24 months, with the possibility of extension.
Start date: 1 April 2024 or as agreed.
