Post-doctoral Climate Adaption Fellow
Job Summary Duration: Temporary Externally Funded Non Grant-in-Aid contract post, the indicative duration of which is 20 months , subject to contract. A panel may be formed from which future similar vacancies may be filled; such a panel will remain active for a maximum period of 12 months Basic Function: This work will be part of the FarmADAPT project funded by DAFM. The successful candidate will systematically review peer-reviewed papers and scientific reports of research projects relevant to climate adaptation for Irish agriculture published in English between the 1st January 2013 to the 1st January 2023. This review will focus on the impact of climate change on the arable sector (tillage and horticulture), on the grassland/livestock (beef, dairy, sheep, pigs and poultry), and on forestry (forest and agro-forestery). For each sectors, four main axis will be developed: the main negative effects and risks that climate change will bring; the main opportunities and positive impacts that climate change could bring, what are the main adaptation strategies which are available or needs development and what are the current knowledge gaps. The successful candidate will also be in charge in collaboration with other Teagasc staff to organise a conference on climate adaptation at the end of the project. Background to the post: Knowledge on climate change and climate change adaptation is fast evolving. This is why an update on the state of science is a necessity. To ensure resilience of the agronomic sector to both extreme and slow-onset climate events, adaptation strategies are urgently needed to reduce the social, economic and environmental impacts. This post will be part of the stimulus founded project FarmAdapt. FarmAdapt goal is to provide scientific evidence synthesis and analysis on climate adaptation from one side and farmers’ attitudes towards these measures on the other side. Thus, social barriers towards climate mitigation and adaptation measures will also be identified by facilitating focus groups with farmers. FarmAdapt will focus on the arable, grassland, livestock, forestry sectors and water quality, soil and biodiversity. It will look at the possible negative effects and risks of climate change but it will also investigate possible opportunities and positive impacts of climate change, such as higher winter growth for grass, higher yield for crops and forestry due to warmer temperatures and increased CO2. It will look into already existing adaptation strategies which could exist in other countries with similar climate to the one projected for Ireland in the future such as in the uk and west of France. From this research, knowledge gaps will be identified, and new policy and research directions will be suggested. The position will be based at Teagasc, Animal & Grassland Research and Innovation Centre, Moorepark, Fermoy, Co. Cork. Teagasc Moorepark is Ireland’s leading dairy research institute with national responsibility for all aspects of dairy production research which include grassland and grazing management, dairy cow breeding and reproduction, dairy cow health and welfare, milk composition and dairy cow nutrition, milking technology and milk production systems plus economic analysis. The research programme is conducted by over 30 scientific and technical professionals, supported by administrative and operative staff. Moorepark operates a total of 7 individual dairy research farms totalling 500 hectares and over 1,000 dairy cows. Facilitates include modern individual cow feed and metabolism units, laboratories, computer facilities and milking research laboratories Background to Teagasc Post Doctoral Programme The Teagasc post-doctoral programme provides training and development opportunities for early career scientists that enhances their experience of learning and equips them with the necessary skills for the next stage of their chosen career in research.
