The Union of Concerned Scientists Food & Environment Program is seeking a postdoc/fellow to conduct research on agroecological solutions for mitigating drought risk and costs in managed watersheds.  The position will begin in October 2015 with a term of up to 2 years. The deadline to apply is 18 November 2014.

Project Description
Agroecological solutions for drought risk and costs: The Fellow will conduct original research to quantify the potential impacts of future drought scenarios in major U.S. agricultural watersheds and identify the extent to which a shift to ecologically-based practices could mitigate those effects. Through this lens, the Fellow will examine the sustainability of farmlands and rangelands, food production, and farm profits.  This research will be part of a broader effort to understand the climate, environmental, and economic impacts of agroecological systems and the Fellow will collaborate closely with a multidisciplinary team to develop a strong project, craft policy recommendations, and communicate findings to media, policymakers, experts, and the public.

Applicants should have numerical modeling experience and expertise in hydrologic, agricultural and/or environmental sciences. For more information please see: http://www.ucsusa.org/about/jobs-ucs#KendallAgroecologist
