The Global Phosphorus Institute (GPI) is a global organization with a holistic vision, footprint and participation to ensure responsible use of phosphorus through cutting-edge science and stakeholder dialogue.

Global Phosphorus Institute (GPI) has been established to promote global networks of research, innovation and dialogue on the vital role of phosphorus in supporting and improving life on earth in all its forms. To gain a complete picture of the current phosphorus cycle, knowledge from a broad spectrum of sciences, ranging from geology, mining, and chemical engineering; soil and plant sciences; and all facets of agricultural and environmental sciences to economics, policy, and behavioral and decision science related to P along the value chain will be brought together.




The Global Phosphorus Institute (GPI; is seeking a well-qualified and motivated Scientist to provide scientific support in agronomic, environmental, and other technical fields associated with the responsible management of phosphorus, its sustainable use and accessibility.

The ideal candidate will work independently and collaboratively with internal teams and external partners to identify important issues associated with the sustainable management of phosphorus in agricultural, industrial, and other non-agricultural uses, show leadership with those issues, define critical research gaps associated with them, and be able to design and oversee studies that add to the current knowledge on sustainable use of phosphorus.
