Preliminary call: Joint Colombia-NZ PostDoc project in Global Research Alliance Biological Nitrification Inhibition (BNI) programme

Overall aim: Understanding the key controlling points of BNI in tropical and temperate systems in relation to N2O emissions.

This 2-year PostDoc position for researchers from developing countries, is part of a collaboration with the Alliance Bioversity & CIAT (Colombia) and AgResearch (New Zealand) on the role of Biological Nitrification Inhibition (BNI) for reducing N2O emissions from livestock systems. The project is funded by the New Zealand Government in support of the objectives to the Livestock Research Group of the Global Research Alliance (GRA). The position is primarily based at CIAT campus, located in Cali, Colombia, but will be conducted in close collaboration with researchers in New Zealand.

The project focusses on identifying and quantifying the key control points of BNI in both tropical and temperate systems for maximising reductions in N2O emissions. It is an interdisciplinary project, involving plant, soil and systems scientists and will use the G x E x M framing to identify key genetic, environmental and management factors and their interactions.

The project will include conceptualisation of this framework, development, and meta-analysis of a quantitative database of information available in global BNI literature, and targeted experimental work to fill key gaps in the knowledge of controls of BNI effects on N2O emissions.
