We are recruiting a new postdoc for an exciting position to assess the role of dams in delivering improved food security in developing countries as part of the FutureDams research centre led by the University of Manchester. The selected candidate will use remote sensing, field datasets, and crop models to evaluate impacts of historic and future dam developments on agricultural productivity and livelihoods, and investigate trade-offs between agriculture and other water users (e.g. hydropower, environment). Research activities will focus on three primary case study river basins: the Nile and Volta basins in Africa, and the Salween River basin in Myanmar. The position is available for a period of 3 years starting from summer 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
