Post doctoral position in image analysis to detect disease and monitor drought in field-grown potato

The Department of Plant Protection Biology at SLU Alnarp has more than 50 researchers and staff. Leading research is conducted in resistance biology, integrated plant protection and chemical ecology. The objective of the Resistance Biology Unit is to meet the future need to minimize the use of chemical fungicides, and the effects of climate change that lead to new plant diseases patterns and stresses. This project is in collaboration with the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science at Lund University and is part of NordPlant - a new Nordic Hub for Sustainable Agriculture and Forest Production in Future Nordic Climates.
