The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver economically, environmentally and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society. ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
We are offering a postdoc position within the FAIR-Sahel project funded by the European Commission under the DeSIRA programme. FAIR-Sahel aims to support smallholders in Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal to improve their living conditions and build their resilience to climatic and other shocks. The project will look specifically at agroecological intensification practices and methods, and how to support their successful application and access by farmers. Supporting the work of various PhD students, this postdoc position will lead efforts to evaluate the response of crops, cropping systems and soil organic carbon to select agroecological intensification practices under a range of climate scenarios using process based modelling at both local and regional scale.The postdoc position will be based in the Cropping System Analysis working group at ZALF at the Müncheberg campus for two years (TVL13) starting from May 2021 (subject to final approval of the funding contract).
