Poste de Chargé de Recherche en épidémiologie végétale / Permanent research position in plant disease epidemiology

poste CR
Ouverture d'un poste de CR "Récurrence épidémique et gestion des résistances variétales" / opening of a permanent research position on "Epidemic recurrence and management of varietal resistance".

Activités-clés et compétences-cibles - L'objectif de l'équipe d'accueil est d'améliorer l'efficacité et la durabilité des résistances variétales contre les maladies fongiques du blé. La personne recrutée mènera des projets visant à caractériser les processus épidémiologiques impliqués dans la récurrence pluriannuelle des épidémies et la dynamique des populations pathogènes. Il/elle intègrera ces processus et leurs facteurs d'influence pour concevoir et évaluer des stratégies de gestion des résistances variétales. Il/elle s'appuiera sur des stratégies expérimentales multi-échelles (plante, parcelle, paysage) en interaction forte avec les membres de l'équipe travaillant sur les interactions hôte-pathogène, l'évolution des populations pathogènes et les processus impliqués dans la transmission interannuelle des virulences, et collaborera avec des modélisateurs. Il/elle justifiera de compétences en phytopathologie et épidémiologie, écologie ou dynamique des populations de microorganismes en contexte agronomique.

Formations recherchées - Doctorat ou équivalent en épidémiologie végétale, phytopathologie, biologie des populations fongiques. Des compétences en démo-génétique, évolution/écologie des populations de microorganismes, agroécologie seront un atout. La maîtrise de l'anglais est souhaitée ainsi qu'une expérience internationale de longue durée : les lauréats qui n'en auraient pas encore eu devront réaliser un séjour à l'étranger à l'issue de l'année de stage.

Key activities and required skills - The goal of the host research team is to improve the efficacy and durability of varietal resistance against fungal diseases of wheat. The successful candidate will lead projects aiming to characterize the epidemiological processes involved in the multi-annual recurrence of epidemics and pathogen population dynamics. He/she will integrate these processes and their influencing factors to design and evaluate varietal resistance management strategies. He/she will base his/her research on multi-scale experimental strategies (plant, field, landscape) in close collaboration with other team members working on host-pathogen interactions, evolution of pathogen populations and processes involved in the inter-annual transmission of virulence, and will collaborate with modellers. Skills in phytopathology and epidemiology, ecology or dynamics of microbial populations in an agronomical context are highly recommended.

Training required - PhD or equivalent, preferably in plant epidemiology, phytopathology, biology of fungal populations. Skills in demogenetics, evolution/ecology of microbial populations, and agroecology would be a bonus. Candidates should have a good command of English, and long-term international experience would also be desirable. Successful candidates who have not yet acquired this experience abroad will be required to do so after their probationary period (1st year).
