Dear colleagues, in case you are or know someone who may be interested, there is an open postdoc position in social network analysis at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala. You can contact the project leader Lars Rönnegård if you have any questions (info and contact below).



Postdoc in precision livestock farming with a background in computational biology

Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden

The research group working on cow social interactions and disease transmission (CSI:DT) is recruiting a fully-funded postdoctoral researcher (2 years) to work on social network analysis and quantitative genetics in dairy cattle. The project is led by Professor Lars Rönnegård and uses data on positions of cows in two dairy barns collected once every second. Data on more than 200 cows per farm have already been collected for two years and data collection continues. Your primary tasks will be to quantify cows’ behaviour using mathematical modelling of social networks and to develop methodology in quantitative genetics. But you are also expected to develop own research ideas connected to social interactions in dairy cows. You will work in an interdisciplinary team with competences in genetics, ethology, epidemiology, statistics, ecology and engineering. For further information concerning the research group and ongoing research, see
