Origin Enterprises Newman Fellowship in Agri-Systems Modelling

As part of its programme to provide postdoctoral research opportunities for scholars of proven academic excellence, University College Dublin is pleased to announce the Origin Enterprises Newman Fellowship in Agri-Systems Modelling, with a focus on the use of satellite imagery, data analytics and systems modelling in the management of grassland systems. This Newman Fellowship is established with the generous support of Origin Enterprises Plc. The Newman Fellow will be expected to use data analytical techniques and statistical modelling of crop-related data for the prediction of grass growth. The Fellow will be based in the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science under the supervision of Prof Jimmy Burke and will also work closely with Prof Shane Ward in the UCD School of Biosystems & Food Engineering.

Applications are invited from candidates who hold a doctoral degree and have experience in research methodology. Applicants should have a strong capability in data analytics, systems modelling and some experience in cropping systems. The successful applicant will have published in high impact journals and will show an interest in the use of satellite imagery and other data sources for the prediction of crop growth. Candidates should hold a high honours degree and a PhD (or a PhD pending or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, and should be able to demonstrate a track record in their career to date.

The Origin Newman Fellowship comes with a generous stipend and is tenable for two years.
