Join Dr. Emily Burchfield’s research group, the FACES Lab, as a Postdoctoral Researcher and join an interdisciplinary and trans-institutional NSF-funded project that is engaging stakeholders in three U.S. states to identify, model, and understand the emergent crops, technologies, policies, and on-farm realities likely to alter agricultural futures in each region.

The successful candidate will contribute to research in the following areas:

  • Historical analyses of agricultural land use change in the U.S.
  • Predictive modeling of future agricultural land use change in the U.S. under various stakeholder-informed scenarios.

  • Identification of transition pathways—at multiple scales—towards agricultural futures desired by diverse stakeholders.
