Job description

 

Post Doctoral Research Position

The successful applicant will be based in my USDA-ARS lab located on the UC Davis campus, and will work closely with UC Davis Biometeorologists Kyaw Tha Paw U and Rick Snyder and with grower cooperators.

Technology Development for Agricultural Water Use/Crop Evapotranspiration:
Our interdisciplinary team (Plant Physiologists, Biometeorologists, and Engineers) is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to further the development and validation of our recently patented surface renewal technology. This technology provides growers with a cost-effective way to measure real-time, site-specific evapotranspiration, and has been calibrated extensively in vineyards against eddy covariance and weighing lysimetry.  The research associate will: utilize existing datasets collected across a broad range of cropping surfaces to evaluate our new surface renewal calculations; establish and maintain stations in a variety of field settings including vineyards and a newly established orchard containing a weighing lysimeter; develop and test a field-ready prototype for irrigation management while working closely with industry partners; test the effectiveness of the tool to detect crop stress thresholds that trigger irrigation events; and/or evaluate its potential as a tool to fight forest fires and forecast yields of row crops. This position is funded for two years through the USDA-ARS Postdoctoral Research Associate Program. The research associate would be housed in the McElrone lab on the UC Davis campus.
