BACKGROUND:

THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF TROPICAL AGRICULTURE (IITA) WITH HEADQUARTERS IN IBADAN, NIGERIA, INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR POSTDOCTORAL SCIENTIST:  BANANA/PLANTAIN AGRONOMIST.

IITA IS NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION WITH OVER 130 INTERNATIONALLY RECRUITED SCIENTISTS. THE INSTITUTE HAS PROGRAMS IN MANY COUNTRIES OF SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA.

PLANTAIN AND BANANA (MUSA SPP.) ARE IMPORTANT STAPLE FOOD CROPS IN THE LOWLAND HUMID FOREST AND MID-ALTITUDE AGRO ECOLOGIES OF SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA. CONSIDERED TO BE AMONG THE 10 MOST IMPORTANT FOOD CROPS OF THE WORLD, PLANTAIN AND BANANA ARE PRIMARY SOURCES OF CARBOHYDRATES IN THE SUB-SAHARAN REGION. THERE IS TREMENDOUS UNCERTAINTY FACING PLANTAIN AND BANANA PRODUCTION AS PEST AND DISEASE PRESSURE ON THE CROP HAS BEEN INCREASING FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS, RESULTING TO A RAPID DECLINE OF YIELD AND REDUCTION IN PLANTATION LIFE. IITA HAS ADDRESSED PEST AND DISEASE PROBLEMS OF PLANTAIN THROUGH AN INTENSIVE BREEDING PROGRAM, RESULTING IN THE SELECTION OF NEW VARIETIES OF PLANTAIN AND BANANA THAT ARE HIGH-YIELDING AND RESISTANT TO DISEASES. SIMILARLY, INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT PACKAGES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO PRODUCE HEALTHY PLANTING MATERIALS, THEREBY REDUCING PEST INCIDENCE, PARTICULARLY WITH RESPECT TO NEMATODES AND WEEVILS. COMPARATIVELY LESS HAS BEEN DONE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFICIENT CROP MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR FULL EXPRESSION OF THE GENETIC POTENTIAL OF THE NEW VARIETIES. THE ADOPTION OF NEW VARIETIES AND TECHNIQUE PACKAGES THROUGH NARS-MEDIATED DISSEMINATION TO SMALL-HOLDER FARMERS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED CROP MANAGEMENT PRACTICES WOULD INCREASE THE IMPACT OF IITA?S RESEARCH IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA. AS A MEMBER OF THE BANANA AND PLANTAIN IMPROVEMENT TEAM, THE POST DOCTORAL SCIENTIST WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH PACKAGES THROUGH EXTENSIVE INTERACTION.

THE EMPHASIS OF THE POSITION IS TO:

?         TO ESTABLISH ON-FARM DEMONSTRATION TRIALS IN COLLABORATION WITH FARMERS AND NARS SCIENTISTS
?         TO DETERMINE THE PATTERNS OF DRY MATTER PARTITIONING IN BANANA/PLANTAIN UNDER DIFFERENT CROPPING REGIMES
?         TO ASSESS NUTRIENT USE EFFICIENCY AND NUTRIENT CYCLING EFFICIENCY IN RELATION TO SUCKERING BEHAVIOR IN BANANA/PLANTAIN
?         TO DETERMINE APPROPRIATE VARIETALS ASSOCIATIONS BASED ON BETTER UNDERSTANDING LOCAL FARMERS? CROPPING SYSTEMS AND AN ASSESSMENT OF INTERPLANT COMPETITION
?         WORK WITH THE BANANA BREEDER AND OTHERS IN PUBLICATIONS, CONCEPT NOTE PREPARATION, AND PROJECT DEVELOPMENT.
?         PERFORM OTHER TASKS AS REQUIRED BY THE BANANA BREEDER AND OTHERS.

DUTY STATION:  IBADAN, NIGERIA
 
EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS:

A RECENT PHD DEGREE IN AGRONOMY, PHYSIOLOGY, CROP MANAGEMENT, SEED SYSTEMS OR A RELATED DISCIPLINE.
?    A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF BREEDING AND OF HOST-PATHOGEN INTERACTIONS, PREFERABLY ON A VEGETATIVE PROPAGATED CROP.
