Organisation: Earthworks on behalf of Teagasc
Application deadline: 12 midnight on 18 January 2018
Teagasc, the agriculture and food development authority in Ireland, invite applications for a post-doctoral research position (level 1).
The primary objective of this project is to develop a spatially integrated soils and land use database for Ireland that will be used to provide a robust estimate of reference soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks and improve our capability to inform Tier 2 reporting of activities and land-based mitigation methodologies.
The post-doctoral fellow will combine image interpretation experience with spatial analytical methodologies to create a nationally definitive inventory of landuse and soil types by re-analysis of an existing landuse photo-database in conjunction with the Teagasc Soil Information System (SIS) in a GIS environment.
