Support us from 01.04.2024 in part-time (65 %) as a
Researcher in the field of Hydrological Modeling (m/w/d)
Pending final approval the position is to be filled in the third-party funded research group "TRIO - Transformative Mixed Crop Systems for One Health" for a limited period until 30.09.2027 at the Institute of Landscape Ecology and Resource Management at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Nutritional Sciences and Environmental Management. The salary is in accordance with the collective labour agreement of the State of Hessen (E 13 TV-H).
In the pursuit of sustainable mixed cropping systems that prioritize the well-being of soil, plants, animals, and humans while maintaining economic viability, a collaborative effort has been launched under the LOEWE project TRIO, funded by the state of Hessen. Researchers from the Universities of Kassel, Giessen, and Geisenheim have united their expertise to tackle this critical challenge.
Our working group at JLU Giessen will conduct own experiments and establish a soil moisture network to examine and model water flows within the planned field trials. Together with an agricultural plant growth model (University of Kassel), we will also assess the regional suitability and effectiveness of the mixed cropping systems explored within the TRIO project, particularly in the context of anticipated climate change impacts in Hessen.
Through TRIO, we aim to advance our understanding of sustainable agricultural practices and their resilience to a changing climate, ultimately fostering healthier ecosystems.
