Job Title
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Civil and Environmental Eng - 25200
Position Summary
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton 
University is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to be a key team 
member on an NSF Hazards SEES project, entitled: "Understanding 
cross-scale interactions of trade and food policy to improve resilience 
to drought risk in Zambia". The project is led by Dr. Justin Sheffield 
(PI), Professor Kelly Caylor, and Dr. Lyndon Estes. This is a 
cutting-edge, inter-disciplinary project that seeks to understand the 
interactions between drought, policy, trade, and food security outcomes. 
The position will entail developing spatially explicit, high-resolution 
crop yield estimates and drought typologies, analyzing how spatial and 
temporal drought variability impacts crop production, and using these 
results to help uncover how drought-related production impacts interact 
with trade and food policy to affect food access, and thus food security.

The successful candidate will be based at Princeton University, and 
expected to work across disciplines and with colleagues from Indiana 
University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Zambian 
Agricultural Research Institute and other collaborators.

Initial term of appointment is for one year with the possibility of 
renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding. This position is 
subject to the University's background check policy.

Candidates should apply online at http://jobs.princeton.edu - 
Requisition #1600079 and submit the following items: 1) a cover letter, 
including a description of how this position fits with your research 
interests; 2) curriculum vita; 3) contact information for three people 
who can act as a reference. For full consideration, applicants should 
apply by March 1, 2016.
Essential Qualifications
Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field is required.
The ideal candidate will have a solid understanding of how drought 
impacts crop production and how this translates to food security, and 
who has at least one (ideally all) of the following skills: agricultural 
remote sensing, crop modeling, and hydro-climatological analysis.
