We are offering two jobs:


1) PhD/doctoral student position (f/m) - (30 h/week)

For our research site in Vienna and Großenzersdorf (Institute for Agricultural Engineering, BOKU - University of Natural Resources in Vienna) and cooperation with Steyr tractors we are offering a PhD/doctoral student position (f/m).

Planned start of work: July 2019.

The determination of the nutrition status of plants is based on the measurement of spectral properties of plant leaves. However, under field conditions these methods are subject to errors due to environmental influences and plant structure. Since in most cases only differences in the crop supply status can be detected, but no absolute values are measured, calibration before each measurement is necessary. In this PhD project, a spectral measurement method is to be developed which takes additional image information into account and thus provides more precise, reproducible values allowing for the comparison of these values for different sites and time points.
