Welcome to Imen!

2nd May 2019


Imen Jendoubi joins us as visiting PhD candidate for a 3-month period. She is supervised in Tunisia by Dr. Bochra Bahri. She will perform thermal phenotyping tests with Tunisian Puccinia striiformis strains and assess their adaptation to temperature. She will work under the direct supervision of Marc Leconte.


Welcome to Gwilherm!

1st April 2019

GAZEAU Gwilherm

Gwilherm Gazeau joins us as engineer for a 28-month period. He will participate in the phenotyping and monitoring of French populations of Zymoseptoria tritici, in particular through the development of new molecular tools and protocols for the characterization of fungal populations. This work will be coordinated between the FSOV DivR project and a collaborative project with the BASF compagny under the supervision of Reda Amezrou, Thierry Marcel, and Anne-Sophie Walker (AMAR team).


Welcome to Reda!

25th March 2019


Reda Amezrou joins us as post-doc researcher for a 3-year period. He will conduct researches within a collaborative project with the BASF compagny aiming at the identification of genetic determinants involved in the pathogenicity and fungicide resistance of Zymoseptoria tritici. The approach followed will consist at acquiring whole genome resequencing data to identify polymorphisms, and precise quantitative phenotypes to perform GWAS. The results obtained should help implementing responsible and relevant disease control measures and more generally, improving the sustainability of fungicide modes of action and of resistant wheat cultivars. Reda will work under the supervision of Thierry Marcel and Anne-Sophie Walker (AMAR team).


Welcome to Jad!

11th March 2019

Welcome to Carolina!

1st October 2018


Carolina Orellana-Torrejon joins us, again (after her successful MSc training period!) as PhD candidate working on "The impact of varietal mixtures on local dynamics of resistance breakdown: case of inter-epidemic transmission of a virulence recently appeared in Zymoseptoria tritici populations", under the supervision of Frédéric Suffert and Sébastien Saint-Jean (ECOSYS).


Welcome to Benjamin!

 2nd July 2018

BOUDIER Benjamin

Benjamin Boudier joins us as engineer. He will work for the H2020 Emphasis project under the supervision of Valérie Laval and Frédéric Suffert. He will characterize a collection of fungi isolated from wheat and oilseed rape residues by Lydie Kerdraon during her PhD project, will develop interaction tests with Leptosphaeria maculans on oilseed rape at cotyledon stage, and will quantify the intensity of sexual reproduction of Zymoseptoria tritici.


Long and happy retirement to Claude!

14th June 2018


Many colleagues from BIOGER (and elsewhere) were gathered at Claude Pope's retirement party. Photos and annectodes summarized a professional life dedicated to the epidemiology of yellow rust and other wheat diseases. Claude, we all wish you a long and happy retirement!


Welcome to Julie!

12th February 2018

Julie Noah, Engineer candidate at the engineering school UniLaSalle, campus of Rouen, joins us for a 5-month project on the development of a quantitive pathogenicity test on wheat leaf rust (Puccinia triticina), under the supervision of Henriette Goyeau and Thierry Marcel.


Welcome to Julien!

5th February 2018

Julien Colombet joins us as engineer assistant. He will work for the FSOV project "Search for durable resistance to yellow rust in durum wheat and triticale", combining phetotyping and genotyping of French Puccinia striiformis strains, under the supervision of Claude Pope and Marc Leconte.


A permanent research position CR2 (junior researcher) is open in our team

29th January 2018

Permanent research position CR2 in plant disease epidemiology on "Epidemic recurrence and management of varietal resistance"

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).

More details & contact

Deadline for submitting applications:
- 5th March 2018, at 5pm (Paris time), for online applications
- 28 February 2018, at midnight (as attested by the postmark), for paper applications

Congrats to Anne-Lise!

7th July 2017
