GEOSTATS: Postdoctoral Research Associate - Spatial Analysis for Precision Farming
- 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
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
