Research Engineer Position

Developing microbial, ecological and analytical methods to evaluate the activity of a new bacterial biocontrol product against Orobanche parasitic weeds.

Posted: 15/04/2020 - Expiration Date: 30/06/2020
Funds: ANR-19-ECOM-0002-01 Weeds-Biocontrol
A Research Engineer position is available in the UMR CNRS 5557 Ecologie Microbienne Lyon, Team Rhizosphere, at University Lyon 1 to develop and implement methods for analyzing the biocontrol activity of a bacterial product against the growth of Orobanche parasitic weeds.

The Research Engineer will be in charge of the optimization of the production of the OGI metabolites. He/she will realize the greenhouse assays to determine the application methods, product concentrations and timings, allowing the best protection activity of rapeseed against Orobanche. He/she will participate to the implementation of field trials to validate the good efficacy of the biological solution emerging from this project.
Applicants should have a strong background in microbial ecology, biocontrol issues, interest in designing plant experiments and conducting field and lab work, as well as strong skills in oral and written communications. Applicants should have knowledge on the biology of Orobanche parasitic weeds and technical skills in microbiology, agronomy, and if possible LC/DAD-MS/MS.
