Functiebeschrijving

Fellowship
The objective of the research done at Wageningen University in the Netherlands focuses on the development of a spatially explicit multi-criteria decision support framework (DSF) for evaluation of agricultural management strategies. The evaluation encompasses both agronomic aspects as yield and crop quality as well as soil fertility and environmental trade-offs on the short and long term. Ultimately, the DSF aims to underpin the development and dissemination of sustainable agricultural management by multiple stakeholders such as farmers, policy makers and industry.

The development of such a decision support framework consists of the following tasks:
  1. Development of broadly applicable sustainability indices allowing quantitative evaluation of management strategies while accounting for local agro-ecosystem properties;
  2. Development of a dynamic and spatially explicit model framework integrating the various sustainability indices using multi criteria analysis.
  3. Evaluation of the framework on experimental data, in collaboration with other institutes.

    We are searching for a highly motivated candidate who is able to work independently as well as in our team. A master degree in environmental sciences, soil science or equivalent education is required. The candidate should have excellent experience in modeling, statistics and data handling. Adequate English language skills and practice in scientific writing is required.

Functie-eisen

Experience and mobility conditions
To be eligible, applicants for Early-Stage Researcher fellowships must have no PhD and less than 4 years full-time equivalent research experience from the award of the degree which entitles them to undertake a doctorate. Applicants can be any nationality but at the time of selection must not have resided or carried out their main activity (e.g. work or studies) in the Netherlands for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the starting date of the fellowship. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.

The eligibility requirements for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships are non-negotiable and ineligible applicants will not be considered. Further information and the full terms and conditions regarding eligibility are provided on ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/about-msca/actions/itn/index_en.htm or https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/h2020-section/marie-sklodowska-curie-actions Work Programme 2014-2015.

Application process
Candidates should provide the following information in one file for their application:
  1. A detailed CV with covering letter which explains your suitability, competence and motivation for scientific research and the fellowship
  2. All undergraduate level certificates including university grades. Foreign documents should be sent as certified English translations.
  3. A summary of technical and scientific experience
  4. A synopsis of the undergraduate/Master's level thesis if applicable, or a detailed description of any previous research project and its appropriate work plan
  5. A list of publications and/or presentations at meetings, if applicable
  6. Contact information of two referees
Applications should be sent before 26 August 2016.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

Benefits
All fellows will receive a contract of employment as a full-time researcher for the relevant period of their appointment, which will include applicable benefits in the host country. All fellows will complete a comprehensive personalised career development programme, with targeted training measures and participate in a range of network events across the partnership, including industrial training experience. Participation in external relevant scientific and technical training events and conferences is also supported. Fellows will benefit from interdisciplinary cooperation and interaction with all sectors of the agri-environmental management community, providing them with the best preparation for a successful career in either academia or industry.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships for Early-Stage Researchers provide a fixed allowance of Euros 37,320 per year for three years, which is subject to a country correction. Additional allowances for mobility and family status are also provided, as appropriate, in line with H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015.

Duration of employment
The period of appointment is up to 36 months, from October 2016. Successful candidates are expected to register for a programme of study that leads to a PhD. Finalization of the PhD is expected in the end of 2020.

Background

Agricultural production in Europe has significantly increased food security but simultaneously damaged soil and water resources and ecosystem biodiversity, and contributed to climate change. Further intensification of production to ensure food security for population growth must be sustainable to minimise future environmental impacts and negative externalities. Addressing this legacy and improving the quality and quantity of these critical natural resources for future use requires innovative sustainable management concepts, which must consider environmental, technical, social and economic factors. Decision-making frameworks and predictive tools must also be developed to implement sustainable agricultural practices and devise measures to mitigate impacts. These approaches must be developed from the farm- to catchment-scale and consider the cycling of nutrients and pollutants through the continuum of the atmosphere-soil-surface water-groundwater systems within European agricultural landscapes. Meeting these challenges requires an integrated analysis represented in this project.

INSPIRATION (managing soil and groundwater impacts from agriculture for sustainable intensification) is a multidisciplinary European Training Network composed of 26 partners in 9 European countries, which aims to develop low-technology management practices, monitoring approaches, modelling and decision-making tools, and innovative technology applications in the field of sustainable agriculture by a combination of fundamental and applied science (www.inspirationitn.eu). The research focuses on understanding and predicting the environmental fate of nutrient and organic pollutants from agricultural practices and managing their impact on soil, water and climate systems to ensure sustainable production. It links lab- to catchment-scale studies of biogeochemical processes with field-scale evaluation of novel monitoring and management concepts, using state-of-the-art methods. The network will provide high-quality research training to young scientists, through 15 fully-funded Early-Stage Researcher (PhD level) fellowships. The network includes leading research groups, regulators, advisory bodies, water utilities, consulting firms, commercial R&D and multinationals. The project has an international advisory group and will undertake a comprehensive programme of knowledge transfer and outreach activities with other scientific networks and professional bodies in this field.

Host organisation
Host organisation is the Environmental Systems Analysis (ESA) Group of Wageningen University, which is an international oriented University which cooperates with partners from all over the world in education and research on the theme 'healthy food and living environment'. Wageningen University's hosts students from over 100 countries. Our mission is: To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life. The research of the ESA group carries out Environmental Systems Analysis, which is a quantitative and multidisciplinary research field aimed at analysing, interpreting, simulating and communicating complex environmental problems from different perspectives. The group combines ecological, economic, technological and policy perspectives in order to develop new insights in the causes, effects and potential solutions to complex environmental issues.
