CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in Modelling of Crop Establishment



New job opening at CSIRO for an enthusiastic post-doc! Model the soil temperature, water and strength dynamics in the surface soil as it affects crop establishment from deep sowing long coleoptile wheat or long hypocotyl canola.

  • Critiquing and proposing improved ways of representing or parameterising the processes that affect surface soil water and temperature dynamics in agricultural systems
  • Collating, formatting and managing data sets on surface soil water and temperature dynamics so they can be used in testing new simulation capacity or parameterisation procedures in APSIM NextGen.
  • Working with the project teams to quantify through simulations the dynamics of surface soil water, temperature and soil strength as it relates to seedling establishment.
  • Recognising opportunities for innovation and generate new theoretical perspectives by pursuing new ideas/approaches and networking with research colleagues across a range of disciplines
  • Communicating results to scientific peers and stakeholders through publications, workshops, demonstrations, etc.
  • Applications Close: 28 July 2023, 11:00pm AEST
