We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Post-Doctoral Research Associate to work on a project recently funded by Innovate UK, focusing on managing nutritional stresses to enhance and prolong the duration of biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) to improve yield and yield stability in faba beans within the UK.

You will have the opportunity to delve into various aspects of plant/crop physiology, nitrogen metabolism in legumes, and BNF. Moreover, if you have experience working with isotopes in agriculture, this project will provide a perfect platform to further enhance your skills. You will gain an in-depth understanding of experimental design, isotope and statistical analysis of the project data and contribute significantly to the project's success.

You should be able to demonstrate experience and capability in field and greenhouse work, particularly with nutrient management (macro and micro- nutrients), crops (faba bean or legumes) and 15N isotopes.

If you would like further information or an informal discussion about this exciting opportunity, please contact Dr Ravi Valluru, Senior Lecturer in Crop Science, at [email protected].
