Postdoc position in Environmental Statistics at WSU for statewide soil health project
Washington State University is recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct statistical research using data from a statewide soil health sampling project. The growing State of the Soils dataset currently contains nearly 1000 samples analyzed at multiple labs for 30+ indicators of soil health, each paired with a unique survey about farm management. The postdoc will work within the tri-agency Washington Soil Health Initiative (WaSHI) by adding statistical, data science, and pedometric expertise to the project team.
This position would be ideal for either a soils, agriculture, or environmental science PhD with strong statistical training, or a statistics PhD with experience in and knowledge of soil science, agricultural ecology, or complex environmental systems. There is significant potential for real world impact from this research by informing agricultural practices, programs, and policies in Washington. The postdoc will be based in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and advised by Dr. Deirdre Griffin LaHue, Asst. Professor of Soil Health, and work closely with Dr. Dani Gelardi, Lead Soil Scientist at the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA).
