The Crop Science Group within the Institute of Crop Science and Research Conservation (INRES) at the University of Bonn is offering a Post-Doc position (E13 TV-L / 100%) for a period of up to 3 years. The Crop Science group at University of Bonn has a strong focus on developing dynamic, process based models for crop and agroecosystem management. The models are used among others to predict impacts of climate or management changes on crop production as well as eco-system services provision.
The Chair of Applied Social- and Health Psychology, headed by Prof. Dr. Urte Scholz, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Zurich (Switzerland) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher (80%), starting 1st of May, 2021 (negotiable), in the area of agent-based computer simulation of social-psychological processes.

The appointment is for two years and financed by the SNSF pro[…]
The Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research in Chinese Academy of Sciences (http://english.igsnrr.cas.cn/) is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher. The successful candidate will be part of the Key Lab of Land Surface Pattern and Simulation team of CAS, and research interests including climate change, agricultural phenology and food security.
SciSpace invites applications for one programmer position at NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies (NASA GISS) to assist in remote sensing and crop modeling for seasonal yield forecasting. Tasks will include the processing of remote sensing, crop model, and weather model data and their combination within data assimilation and forecasting systems. Information about GISS can be found www.giss.nasa.gov.
A newly funded research project seeks to understand how both rural human communities and species populations will respond to challenges posed by climate change and is by a team of collaborators at the University of Maine (Dr. Tim Waring, Dr. BrianMcGill, Dr. Katie Corlew, Dr. Matthew Dube), and the University of Vermont (Dr. Meredith Niles, Dr. Nicholas Gotelli, Dr. Laurent Hébert-Dufresne). The project will synthesize large amounts of data and develop new modeling techniq[…]
Vacancy at the Rowett Institute of Nutrition & Health, where there is interest in using agent-based modelling to study the social complexity of dietary change.
The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the NSF-EPSCoR GEM3 program (www.idahogem3.org/) aimed at understanding how genetic diversity and phenotypic plasticity affect species response to environmental change, shaping both population response and adaptive capacity.
