OFFER DESCRIPTION

The postdoctoral project is part of the ANR /PRIMA (HORIZON) proposal SIRAM (Sustainable Innovations for Regenerative Agriculture in the Mediterranean area) which aims at developing, scaling-up and disseminate innovative regenerative agriculture approaches to tackle issues related to climate change, desertification, loss of biodiversity excessive use of chemical and low incomes in small-holders farms in the Mediterranean. The tested approaches will be in line with the main principles of regenerative agriculture, namely the adoption of no-tillage practices, the use of cover-crops, the screening of local varieties with resistant traits, the synergic application of biostimulant and bioprotecting microbial strains co-formulated with organic fertilizers from recycled wastes.

The specific missions for this post-doctoral position are :

  • To study regulation of gene expression and biochemical processes in beneficial microorganisms via RNA-Seq and metabolomic tools
  • To study microRNA in plants and microorganisms as a key mechanism of response to biotic and abiotic stresses in an innovative approach
  • To analyse the structure of the microbial communities of selected crops exposed to both biotic stresses and microbe-biomass formulates using high-throughput sequencing technologies
