Dear ISPA community, This is a link to an opportunity for a USA citizen to have a financed postdoc position in my lab, in the Hebrew university of Jerusalem (HUJI), Israel. https://www.fulbright.org.il/program/2/318 - US citizens only. This is distributed with hope to find a good match with a postdoc (2 years) and/or a PhD student (1 semester) for my lab - Plant Sensing Laboratory (PSL). We use remote and proximal sensing to learn about vegetation, mainly in the fields of precision agriculture and phenotyping (breeding). We work with hyper and multi spectral data acquired on ground as well as from air and space in relation to obtaining plant traits and phenology. The PSL is part of the Institute of Plant Sciences and Genetics in Agriculture, in the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, HUJI, Israel. The campus is with ~2,000 bachelors and graduate students as well as postdocs and ~100 research labs. This is the place to study agriculture (among other things) in Israel. It is located in the city of Rehovot (somewhere in between Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem). For more information about our lab or any question, you are most welcome ...more
The Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) is a unique and innovative English language undergraduate institution dedicated to preparing the next generation of agricultural leaders of Rwanda and East Africa. Students at RICA will engage in curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities emphasizing Conservation Agriculture and One Health principles, oral and written communication, leadership, and entrepreneurship. In an experiential learning environment, students will develop the knowledge and experience necessary for a wide range of careers in agriculture. Students at RICA will experience the six Enterprises including Beef Cattle and Small Ruminants, Dairy, Poultry and Swine, Row and Forage Crops, Vegetable and Tree Crops, Irrigation and Mechanization. Communication, One Health Systems Thinking, and Entrepreneurship are woven throughout the curriculum. All RICA graduates will be innovative problem solvers able to operate farms and ranches, start agribusinesses, assume management roles in cooperatives, NGOs, and other agricultural enterprises, serve their communities as extension agents and technical and policy experts, or assume positions of agricultural leadership in Rwanda. DESCRIPTION We are seeking a Precision Agriculture Specialist to join a world-class team of educators and researchers at RICA. Ideal candidates will have a passion for education with a focus on conservation agriculture and systems thinking, ...more
