Postdoc Extended Outlook Crop Monitor

29.01.2021 - University of Maryland, USA

The NASA Famine Early Warning Network (FEWS NET) team is searching for a researcher to contribute to the development of an extended outlook crop monitor (EOCM). The EOCM is expected to provide multi-seasonal forecasts (18- to 24-month lead time) of crop conditions and yields.

The EOCM postdoctoral researcher position is expected to evaluate statistical, physical, and machine learning modeling approaches to providing long lead time forecasts of terrestrial variables relevant to crop condition and yield assessment. This work will involve evaluating the correlations between forecasted hydrological states (e.g., soil moisture, TWS), climate signals, and meteorological variables with crop condition and yield.
