Position Highlights The Brown lab in School of Plant Sciences is seeking a Postdoc who has experience and expertise working with diverse students, colleagues and constituents. The successful candidate will contribute their expertise to a field research and extension project supported by funding from the USDA_NRCS Conservative Innovative Grant (CIG) Program on climate-smart and sustainable agroecological practices (cover crops, manure, tillage types, recycle water, and on-farm waste management) among small-scale farmers in Arizona using farmer-participatory research.

The School of Plant Sciences is a vigorous, cutting-edge, and comprehensive academic unit of the University of Arizona, whose scientists are devoted to study of plants, and the organisms that underpin the survival of terrestrial life. We seek candidates that will strengthen current efforts by the University and the School of Plant Sciences to promote diversity, equity, and inclusivity initiatives on campus, and who will help to promote programs that seek to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM.
