Wageningen University & Research We seek a crop scientist who specializes in analyzing and explaining field crop functioning from (remote or proximal) sensing data. The candidate is experienced in interpreting large datasets coming from crop sensing in terms of crop performance: development, functioning, health, and productivity. The candidate has a background in advanced data analysis (e.g. machine learning techniques) and affinity with crop simulation modelling techniques to link sensor data to underlying crop traits.
The candidate’s research focus should be complementary to ongoing research of the chair group as well as the broader field, with potential for collaboration with public and private partners, both in the temperate and/or (semi-) tropical regions. With this position, we aim to expand the portfolio of the Crop Physiology group in the domain of understanding and predicting crop functioning based on sensor data.

Precision Phenotyping Post-Doctoral Researcher
Corteva The Precision Phenotyping Team is seeking a candidate who can help drive new solutions for plant breeding. Our group develops solutions by investigating new precision phenotyping platforms (drones, robotics, satellite, etc.), sensors (RGB, multi-spectral, hyperspectral, LiDAR, etc.) and other technologies. The selected post doc’s primary responsibility will be to synthesize a number of public disclosures related to precision phenotyping technologies from a sizable pre-existing dataset and drive phenotyping excellence by improving current phenotyping techniques. The successful candidate will need to creatively design and execute science plans related to specific phenotyping targets and have an ability to work both independently and across dynamic teams. Experience with writing manuscripts, machine learning, statistics, and novel precision phenotyping tools is highly desirable. Experience collecting phenotyping data in the field is also favorable

Research Fellow (High- Throughput Plant Phenotyping)
NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY Roles & Responsibilities The Nanyang Technological University School of Materials Science and Engineering (NTU MSE) is looking for a highly motivated and experienced candidate to join us as Research Fellow (RF). The RF will join a 3-year research project funded by Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF). The research project is an interdisciplinary joint project of HUJI (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) and NTU (Nanyang Technological University) aiming to develop a replicable, data-centered, autonomous, sustainable, intelligent, computational urban farming system for whole-plant yield optimization. In this multidisciplinary project, a unique multimodal indoors remote sensing high-throughput plant phenotyping (HTTP) system is incorporated with whole plant and environmental sensing system all data is to be fused and analyzed with AI techniques to optimize yield of indoor crops under solid and hydroponic substrates. The successful candidate will take part in developing and starting the data collection from this unique HTTP system and should be a constructive team member while maintaining independent research.
Research Plant Pathologist/Plant Physiologist/Horticulturist/Geneticist (Plants)
USDA-ARS The incumbent is assigned to a Research Plant Pathologist conducting basic and applied research on Citrus breeding and evaluation. The incumbent provides professional research support and performs technical duties, including coordinating the establishment of a new Citrus orchard with multiple species that will be utilized in a breeding program, evaluating effects of biotic and abiotic stresses in both elite and non-domesticated germplasm, and assessment of water quality and quantity on Citrus health and productivity. In addition, the incumbent will coordinate with Breeding Insight to begin developing infrastructure for genotypic selection in Citrus populations. The overall goal of the research is the development and introduction of new high quality and disease resistant cultivars of grapefruit, lemons, mandarins, and oranges that will sustain American agriculture and supply high quality nutritious fruits to US consumers and international markets.
