Long-term position open at Teagasc

As part of the Root2Res project, Teagasc is looking for a post doctoral researcher in soil and crop microbiome

Root2Res is launched!

The project Kick-Off Meeting was held in France from September 14 to 16

As part of the Root2Res project, Teagasc is looking for a post doctoral researcher in soil and crop microbiome. This long-term contract opportunity is oriented towards studying how crop genetics control root and rhizosphere microbial phenotypes, and how these interact with the environment to deliver an integrated crop resilience to climate stress. Applying process is open until January 17th – follow this link for more information in the Teagasc Opportunities Portal.

The position will be primarily based in the Environment and Land Use Department from Teagasc, based at Johnstown Castle, Wexford. As Ireland’s leading research institute on soils and environment related research and conducts research on soil health, soil-plant interactions, biodiversity, nutrient efficiency, water quality, gaseous emissions and agroecology, they will contribute to the microbial aspects of Root2Res.

Teagasc, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority, is the national public body providing integrated research, advisory, education and training services to the Irish agri-food sector. Its contribution to Root2Res also includes the Crop Science Department, based at Oak Park Research Centre (Carlow), the home of the Teagasc/IPM Potato Group Potato Breeding programme, which is supported by an experienced potato genetics and genomics research group. These groups are focused on identifying and understanding the underlying genetics of potato root characteristics involved in resistance to abiotic stresses.
