UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1

University College Dublin - UCD School of Computer Science

Growth in food production is not matching growth in global population – the world needs new ways of producing more food to meet this massive demand. More efficient and intensive production systems are needed, but so too is a decrease in the environmental impact of such systems. This challenge presents a huge opportunity for Ireland to position itself as a global leader in ‘data-driven’ agriculture, while also delivering a highly competitive and sustainable agri-food industry.

UCD together with Origin Enterprises Plc are establishing a new research programme, CONSUS, focussed on the application of precision agriculture to crop production with a particular emphasis on optimisation of agri-food production systems leading to more efficient food production with lower environmental impacts.

Applications are now invited for the post of Postdoctoral Researcher, level 1. This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

Salary: €34,950 - €37,200 per annum.

Appointment on the above range will be dependent on qualifications and experience.

Prior to application, further information (including application procedure) should be obtained from the UCD Job Vacancies website: http://www.ucd.ie/hr/jobvacancies.

Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified. Any applications which are still in progress at the closing time of 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) on the specified closing date will be cancelled automatically by the system. UCD are unable to accept late applications.

UCD do not require assistance from Recruitment Agencies. Any CVs submitted by Recruitment Agencies will be returned.

UCD is an equal opportunities employer.
