Soil Scientist – Post-Doctoral Fellow (ICRAF)

Post-doctoral fellow – soil scientist

If you can contribute to ICRAF’s research on soil spectral methods, especially to further develop experimental and data analytical and interpretation methods that lead to new products, that provide actionable knowledge and evidenced-based policy for sustainable soil management, then you are the person we are looking for. For over a decade ICRAF has being working on soil infrared spectral methods for rapid prediction of soil functional properties. These methods are now being widely applied in land health surveillance schemes that employ a standardized protocol for landscape level measurement and mapping of soil conditions. The framework is being applied throughout sub-Saharan Africa under the Africa Soil Information Service (www.africasoils.net) as well as in an increasing number of land management projects. ICRAF has recently extended these techniques to include laser and x-ray methods under its new Soil-Plant Spectral Diagnostics Laboratory, and is supporting a network of infrared spectroscopy labs across Africa.

Closing date is 30th April 2012 and more information can be obtained from: the World Agroforestry Centre. Applications for the position of Landscape Ecologist also close on 30th April.
