04/12/18 — Oregon State University: You might know of someone who may be interested in a position for which we are currently advertising. We think it has great potential for someone interested in a career track in agricultural research. Below is the link to the Faculty Research Assistant (FRA) advertisement for our position at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center with our intelligent spray systems research. This research is part of a long-term, multi-state, multi-agency project to improve spray application efficiency in specialty crops. Prior research has shown an average reduction of pesticide volume from 46%-70% using this technology. We are currently expanding the team of faculty here at Oregon State University working with this technology. This is one of two FRA positions (the other based on campus) that will be added to our Oregon research team along with a Post Doc Scholar position later this year. We think this is going to be a great opportunity for someone who is excited about and committed to precision agriculture in the area of IPM and spray application. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know about it this opportunity.Closing date for applications for the position is April 25. https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/57759.
