Vacancy for Postdoctoral Scientist, CABI

This is a new role, created as part an initiative to design and develop a system to capture and measure the global impacts of crop pests and diseases. A Global Burden of Crop Pests and Disease (GBCrop) would ultimately be a system that regularly collects, validates, analyses and disseminates data on the impact of crop pests and diseases. This would enable prioritisation of research and policy in plant health, improve our ability to predict the impact of emerging pests and diseases, and provide the most accurate and relevant information for decision makers to allocate resources between risks and systematically develop investment in, and capacity of, plant health systems.
