PostDoc in plant ecophysiology

23.02.2021 - LEPSE – INRAE, Institut Agro, Montpellier, France

Postdoctoral position in in plant ecophysiology, 1.5 years, application as soon as possible:

INRAE is seeking an outstanding, motivated candidate for a position of Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in plant ecophysiology to work as part of the H2020 SolACE and EPPN200 projects. Through these projects a genetic panel of both bread and durum wheat has been extensively phenotyped in high-throughput phenotyping platforms in controlled environment and semi-field conditions. By analyzing this large dataset you will study the phenotypic plasticity of wheat tillering under contrasted scenarios of water deficit.

In addition to giving new insight regarding the physiological responses of wheat to chronic drought and rewatering, your research will allow a generic approach of parameterization of crop growth models for bread and durum wheat and will identify potential sources of improvement of wheat adaptation and resilience to drought. You will conduct your research in close collaboration with another Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in applied mathematics and artificial intelligence who will develop methods for time-series analyses of in situ 3D images to characterize the evolution of the spatial structure of plants over time.
