Postdoc: Achieving sustainable agriculture under future climatic conditions (modeler)

Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

The postdoctoral scientist will work on an initiative (and strategic) project supported by the university to predict how change of disease management strategies by adopting different agricultural practices may affect the epidemiological and evolutionary patterns of plant pathogens, productivity and resilience of crops, soil health, and economic and ecological benefits to growers and society (externality) in future climatic conditions. The main model systems will be wheat-Zymoseptoria tritici and potato-Phytophthora infestans.
