PhD POSITION: ANIMAL HUSBANDRY – GHG EMISSIONS FROM PASTURES
The project investigates the climate footprint of different grazing systems under Nordic conditions. This research will contribute to the development of climate friendly production systems.
The candidate will, in collaboration with the other members of the international team, carry out measurements of greenhouse gas emissions from individual sheep and dairy cattle in experiments with grazing systems, meta-analysis of greenhouse emissions from ruminants on pasture, and model simulations of greenhouse gas emissions from different grazing systems and production scenarios.
The research findings should be published in scientific journals and in a PhD thesis. Popular science dissemination is included. The candidate should expect some travelling to fulfil the duties.
The contract is for 4 years, of which 75% of the time will be devoted to the PhD project including the education at SLU, and 25% to other obligations at the department of Grassland and Livestock.
