Looking toward a post-lockdown future, as part of a new research group at INRAE in Montpellier, France, there is an opportunity for a predoctoral and/or postdoctoral fellow to advance and link a whole genome simulator with process-based crop models to investigate complex traits in contrasting climate scenarios. The overarching aim is to capitalize on exotic germplasm and alleles to chart new pathways for breeding climate-tolerant crops.
This is a unique, one-time call for a talented predoctoral and/or postdoctoral fellow in quantitative genetic modeling. Details about this opportunity are attached, with a pre-screening deadline of May 8, 2020 (for full consideration).
The program is highly competitive and requires applicants with a strong record and fit for the project. Please share this with anyone you know that fits the profile, or any other groups that come to mind.
Of additional interest is to build international partnerships, so there could be an arrangement of collaboration as part of this. There is flexibility in how the funds are allocated such that it could include international travel and remote research activities.
Related to this, you might be interested in one of our recent publications: https://www.genetics.org/content/213/4/1479. The new effort builds off of this and new developments by the LEPSE unit where this position will be located (e.g., https://www.nature.com/articles/s41588-019-0414-y).
