(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc position Science and practice in Precision Livestock Farming

Are you fascinated by the improvement of livestock and livestock production systems? Do you feel you want to contribute to the scientific challenges in this field? Are you not afraid of big data and next level statistics? And does your drive include educating the biosystems engineers of the future? Then we are looking for you!

Developments in AI and IoT are changing the world. And not just through, for example, social media, but also in agriculture. More and more implementations of such models and algorithms affect the management of animals. The world-wide production of animal proteins and the related intensification of livestock systems both in developed and developing countries opens many opportunities for Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technologies. PLF holds great promise for improving welfare and health of production animals, but also to improve food quality and security, by elevating the role of the farmers in their systems. Fort this, we cooperate with leading international industry partners.

Deadline : 1 July 2024

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral researcher in ethnographies of indigenous knowledge, climate change, and mobile livelihoods in Senegal

We are looking for an emerging scholar in the field of geography and environment to serve as a postdoctoral researcher on a new project titled: Cultural Heritage in Motion: Indigenous Knowledge and Mobile Livelihoods in Changing Climates. The project consists of an international consortium, including Wageningen university (lead coordinator), Mahidol University, University of Vienna, Deltares, and several societal stakeholders from Thailand, Ethiopia and Senegal.

You will develop, supervise, and carry out high-quality research in collaboration with the consortium partners, colleagues at the Environmental Policy Group and Wageningen University and Research, as well as your own international networks. Your research (including fieldwork and desk-based research) will result in co-authored publications in respected international journals as well as societal output, such as media pieces or support in climate-cultural visualizations the project will make with with indigenous communities through artwork and videography. The research will contribute to environmental and critical social science debates through an empirical case study of semi-nomadic pastoral and fishing communities in Senegal. You will have prior ethnographic and qualitative research experience and an ambition to apply this experience to the topic of human mobility and climate change.  

Deadline : 1 July 2024

(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc Hydrological Modelling

The Soil Physics and Land Management chair group at Wageningen University and Research is seeking a postdoc researcher in hydrological modelling who will be responsible for the numerical modelling work in project RESTARTIN: “Restructuring and enhancing strategies with a transformative approach for integrated water disaster management in India and the Netherlands”. This work will involve not only the modelling itself, but also the use of high-resolution satellite imagery to assess vegetation water conditions for calibration, the design of land-use change scenarios (eventually with modelling), and interactions with stakeholders and socioeconomic researchers to translate potential adaptation options into practice.
Your duties and responsibilities include:

  • apply a surface and groundwater model to several regions in the Netherlands (Limburg, Brabant and Holland);
  • assess climate change scenarios and design compatible land-use scenarios;
  • assess the impact of climate change on flood and drought conditions;
  • test potential adaptation options in coordination with stakeholders;
  • some involvement in related educational activities is possible.

Deadline : 7 July 2024

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoctoral researcher in ethnographies of marine restoration and global China in Southeast Asia

A rise of ecological restoration programs world-wide aims to reverse the decline of ocean health by repairing and rebuilding marine and coastal natures. These efforts reveal a shift from protecting nature towards more active human intervention to shape new natures for an uncertain future. In this shift, narratives of care, sustainability and calls to radically transform how we know and relate to the sea mix with technoscientific enterprises to scale up restoration at increasing speed and scale. Both global geopolitical dynamics and local ecologies of human-sea relations based on different philosophies of nature are at play. While there is rising critique on restoration as a form of western ecological imperialism, what is less understood is the role of non-western philosophies – in particular Chinese and traditional understandings of nature – in the current re-building of marine nature at scale. Through a cultural-political lens on Chinese-supported marine restoration projects in Southeast Asia, this research aims to:

  1. map where Chinese investments in marine restoration are occurring globally, with more in depth mapping of those in Southeast Asia.
  2. analyze how different knowledges and values of human-sea relations come together in ecological restoration projects through select comparative case studies in Southeast Asia.
  3. examine the (geo)political consequences: what/who is in-/excluded in how marine natures are re-imagined and reshaped for the future?
  4. identifying how politics of care and geopolitics offer insights into global governance of marine restoration.

Deadline : 26 August 2024
