Assistant Professor of Precision Livestock Farming
College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, The University of New Hampshire
The Department of Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Systems (ANFS) in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture at The University of New Hampshire seeks candidates for a full-time (9 month) tenure track assistant professor of precision livestock management. The successful candidate will conduct research in the broad area of precision livestock management using data-driven methods that could include high throughput phenotyping and genotyping, predictive analytics, spatially distributed experiments and machine learning to assess physiological and behavioral performance indicators for improving animal nutrient use efficiency, animal wellness and farm sustainability. Relative to other regions, Northeast farms are smaller and more numerous per capita. It is important that the research approach is relevant to this regionally-specific scale of production. Given the broad disciplinary expertise in our department, we seek candidates with a strong orientation to interdisciplinary research. The applicant is expected to advise graduate and undergraduate students, teach courses related to candidate’s expertise, and engage in service activities within and outside the Department. We seek applicants with demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion.
