Postdoc/Postdoctoral Researcher - 3D Modeling and Thermal Imaging of Almond Orchards

University of California, Davis


Two postdoctoral research positions are available at the University of California, Davis in the laboratory of Dr. Brian Bailey to develop and use computational models to study almond crop systems (see for information about lab research). Each position will provide up to 3 years of salary support with benefits, and start Fall 2017. Both positions involve developing tools to better model or measure processes related to radiation, water transport, CO2/H20 vapor fluxes, or photosynthesis.

Available positions:
1. This position will focus on using thermographic imagery along with high-resolution three-dimensional models to rapidly infer almond tree water status.

2. This position will focus on developing and using detailed, three-dimensional models of radiation, microclimate, water transport, and photosynthesis to better understand how canopy architecture affects the interactions between almond trees and their environment.

Required Qualifications:
- Completion of PhD degree by position start date in relevant field.
- Proficiency in C/C++ programming, or strong programming skills in other languages.
- Ability to effectively communicate research results through oral and written outlets.

Interested applicants should prepare a CV and short cover letter stating their qualifications in relation to the position, submitted via email to Dr. Brian Bailey (
