Dear ESWN colleagues,

I realize that "production agronomy" is not exactly earth science, but some of you may be soil scientists and/or know someone who might be interested in sustainable production agronomy.  Below is an excerpt from the online ad:

The School of Plant, Environmental, and Soil Sciences, LSU AgCenter and LSU A&M College of Agriculture, seeks applicants for a 12 month (55% research and 45% teaching), tenure-track position specializing in sustainable agronomic production. The incumbent will develop a nationally recognized externally funded research program that will complement efforts of soils and plant nutrition scientists in the unit by focusing on integrated production-related issues of important Louisiana crops. The research will support and be integrated with a teaching component. The successful candidate will teach an undergraduate/graduate course in weed science, undergraduate courses on crop production, and a graduate course on research methods. The incumbent will take leadership in developing the sustainable production curriculum in an interdepartmental program. Additional responsibilities include advising student groups and recruitment of undergraduates in agronomic and related disciplines. QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: Ph.D. in soils, agronomy, weed science, applied biology, or closely related discipline. Experience in production agronomy is desirable. Willingness to work closely with others and recruit students is required. Some travel is required. Excellent verbal and written communication is required.

Please pass along to anyone you know who might be interested. I would be glad to answer questions from potential applicants.

Thanks very much.
