INRA is recruiting 32 research scientists - applications open until 1st March 2016

Whatever scientific discipline they have been trained in, researchers depend on laboratory and field activities. Involved in scientific networks, they respond to environmental, economic and social issues. In striving for excellence, they discover and create concrete applications, useful for society. Personal research and collective projects overlap to advance knowledge and to contribute to innovation, whether it means producing sustainably, preserving the environment or improving human nutrition.

Each year, INRA organises open competitions to recruit junior research scientists (CR2). The recruitment campaign is generally aimed at young researchers who have recently obtained their PhD. Candidates are recruited on the basis of their scientific competence which they will put to the service of INRA's major research axes by responding to a research topic. Candidates must have published articles on the results of their PhD.

Positions are open in a wide range of scientific disciplines such as human food and nutrition and metabolism, epidemiology, animal and plant genetics, functional genomics, modelling of complex systems, agrifood process engineering, ecotoxicology, biogeochemical cycles, plant ecophysiology and functional ecology, sociology and economics.
