      The Water Management Research Unit of the Agricultural Research
      Service, United States Department of Agriculture is currently
      recruiting for a postdoctoral research associate to analyze spatial
      data from a precision farming project that was initiated in 1997.
      The position is funded for at least two years.

      POSITION: Agricultural Engineer/Hydrologist

      DESCRIPTION OF DUTIES:
      Incumbent will join a multidisciplinary team developing methodologies
      that integrate rapid, cost effective data collection with spatial
      analytic techniques to quantify variability and make spatially-variable management
      recommendations. Management recommendations will be implemented using
      technology which can variably apply water, nutrients, and chemicals
      within the context of irrigated precision farming. Incumbent will
      process and review data and interact with team members to explore
      appropriate spatial data analysis techniques, perhaps to include
      multiple regression, cluster analysis, regression trees, and kriging.
      Incumbent will develop acceptable performance evaluation criteria and
      appropriate analytical procedures that can be used by consultants and
      producers to turn precision farming data into useful management
      information.

      SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
      PhD in Agricultural or Civil Engineering, Hydrology, Soil Science,
      Statistics, or related natural resources discipline within previous
      four years. Demonstrated knowledge of GIS, spatial analytical techniques,
      and ability to work in a multidisciplinary team environment required.
      Familiarity with ESRI GIS software, crop production, and upscaling
      point measurements to field scale is desirable.

      The U.S. Department of Agriculture is an equal opportunity provider
      and employer.
