IPNI in Malaysia looking for interns

Our friend and colleague Thomas Oberthur is looking for interns to work with him on a range of projects in Malaysia with IPNI.  Below find the information and contact him directly if interested!

Best management practices for oil palm production

The Southeast Asia (SEA, seap.ipni.net) office of the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is looking for interns interested in analyzing results from several years work on development and implementation of best management practices (BMP) for ecological intensification of oil palm production systems. We are interested in applicants that have the demonstrated capacity to analyze complex agricultural production data using quantitative statistical methods as well as supporting interviews with plantation managers. We encourage recent graduates from the agricultural and environmental sciences or from statistics or similar fields to apply. IPNI SEA is also interested in students who would like to use the data to develop theses dissertations for their M.Sc. We expect applicants to work independently. We consider interns for a stay of 6 months. IPNI SEA will provide office space, library access, limited supervision, and an economy return flight from their home base to Penang, Malaysia and a very modest contribution to living expenses.  If interested, please send your CV and an explication of how your knowledge and expertise can help IPNI SEA in its agronomic and statistical analyses of oil palm production data from the implementation of BMPs to Thomas Oberthür at toberthur@ipni.net

Communications specialist

The Southeast Asia (SEA, seap.ipni.net) office of the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is looking for interns interested in working with us on developing and implementing communication measures for the results from our work on maize and oil palm production systems, and for general aspects of interest to our partners. We are interested in applicants that have the demonstrated capacity to write articles in English, implement and use modern communication media (internet content and design, blogs, etc) and social media. We encourage recent graduates from communications, journalism, international development, public relations, or similar fields to apply. We expect applicants to work independently. We consider interns for a stay of 6 months. IPNI SEA will provide office space, library access, limited supervision, and an economy return flight from their home base to Penang, Malaysia and a very modest contribution to living expenses.  If interested, please send your CV and an explication of how your knowledge and expertise can help IPNI SEA in its communication and publication efforts to Thomas Oberthür at toberthur@ipni.net

Spatial analyses of crop production data

The Southeast Asia (SEA, seap.ipni.net) office of the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is looking for interns interested in spatial modeling of soil fertility information for ecological intensification of maize production systems. IPNI SEA holds a large database of plant nutrition and crop response data from various production locations in Southeast Asia. We are interested in exploring these data for their potential in spatial decision support systems to deliver “nutrient intelligence” for high level decision makers to support targeting of development strategies that benefit from improved plant nutrition. We are looking forward to hear from applicants with demonstrated (i) capacity to analyze complex agricultural production data using spatial and quantitative statistical methods and (ii) ability to use GIS modeling and mapping tools. Understanding of soil fertility or plant nutrition issues would be an advantage. We encourage recent graduates from geographical, IT, environmental and agricultural sciences or similar fields to apply. IPNI SEA is also interested in students who would like to use the data to develop theses dissertations for their M.Sc. We expect applicants to work independently. We consider interns for a stay of 6 months. IPNI SEA will provide office space, library access, limited supervision, and an economy return flight from their home base to Penang, Malaysia and a very modest contribution to living expenses.  If interested, please send your CV and an explication of how your knowledge and expertise can help IPNI SEA in its agronomic and statistical analyses of oil palm production data from the implementation of BMPs to Thomas Oberthür at toberthur@ipni.net
