This is a 12-month tenure-accruing position that will be 60% teaching (College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) and 40% research (Florida Agricultural Experiment Station) available in the Agronomy Department, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, at the University of Florida. This assignment may change in accordance with the needs of the unit. Tenure will accrue in the Department of Agronomy. This position will complement strong agroecology faculty programs addressing agronomic, economic, and ecological resilience in global agroecosystems to complement a comprehensive, preeminent agroecology program at UF. We are looking for candidates with experience working in transdisciplinary teams to investigate global change issues in agroecosystems using a variety of approaches that may include remote sensing and systems analysis at large-scales. The successful candidate will demonstrate expertise in the monitoring and analysis of complex and dynamic agroecosystems at the ecosystem, landscape, and global scales. Potential systems for the focus of investigation include pasture, rangelands, diversified agriculture, and integrated cropping systems. The faculty member will seek contract and grant funding actively to support his/her teaching and research programs.
The mission of the NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) is to promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U. S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.
In these programs, prospective applicants select a research project or projects from among the large group of opportunities listed on this website. Prior to completing an application, prospective applicants should contact the proposed Research Adviser to assure that funding will be available if their application is recommended by NRC panels. Once mutual interest is established between a prospective applicant and a Research Adviser, an application is submitted through the NRC WebRap system. Reviews are conducted four times each year and review results are available approximately 6-8 weeks following the application deadline.
Prospective applicants should read carefully the details of the program to which they are applying. In particular, note eligibility details. Some laboratories have citizenship restrictions (open only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents) and some laboratories have research opportunities that are not open to senior applicants (more than 5 years beyond the PhD). When searching for research opportunities you may limit your search to only those laboratories which match your eligibility criteria. In addition, note the application deadlines, as not all laboratories participate in all reviews.
There are four annual review cycles:
- Review Cycle: August; Opens June 1; Closes August 1
- Review Cycle: November; Opens September 1; Closes November 1
- Review Cycle: February; Opens December 1; Closes February 1
- Review Cycle: May; Opens March 1; Closes May 1
