Postdoctoral position in Modeling Environmental Nitrogen Losses from Corn Production, School of Environmental Sciences

We are seeking candidates for a post‐doctoral fellowship with research focus on improving nitrogen management tools for reduced environmental losses from corn production. Research activities will involve validation and testing of the PNM model using an extensive data set on nitrous oxide emissions and nitrate leaching from corn. The validated models will be used to assess greenhouse gas emission intensity of Ontario’s corn sector and to evaluate the provincewide impact of 4R mitigation practices on environmental N losses.
