Post-Doctoral Fellow: Decision-Making and Team Science

Organization

Auburn University

Deadline

Friday, March 1, 2024

Start Date

Monday, April 15, 2024

The Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology at Auburn University is accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. The anticipated start date is April 15, 2024 for an initial period of 24 months with a possibility of extension depending on the availability of funding. This is a benefit eligible, non-tenure track position.

We seek an energetic and motivated postdoctoral fellow/research associate to conduct innovative socioeconomic research for a project titled, Socio-Agroclimatology: Farm Security, Equity, and Sustainability. This is a collaborative project, funded by the NSF Growing Convergence program, that includes students, postdocs, and faculty at the University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), as well as a team of dedicated community partners. The individual selected for this position will work directly with Drs. Worosz and Sawadgo at Auburn University.

The goal of the project is to understand decision-making among traditionally marginalized farmers surrounding the adoption of climate-smart agricultural tools and practices. The role of the postdoctoral fellow is two-fold: (1) to collect and analyze data for an economic model that will lead to a decision-support tool for farmers, and (2) to monitor and track the growth of convergence among the team members.
