French agricultural research institute INRA seeks scientists [fr]
As the number one research institution in Europe for animal and plant sciences, INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research - France) carries out mission-oriented research for high-quality and healthy foods, competitive and sustainable agriculture and a preserved and valorised environment.
Every year, INRA seeks researchers from all disciplines to reinforce laboratory and fieldwork teams.
Researchers will be heavily involved in scientific networks and tackle environmental, economic and social issues.
They are expected to strive for excellence and come up with useful, concrete applications for the real world.
Individual research projects will go hand in hand with group efforts in a bid to further knowledge and innovation, in order to produce sustainably, preserve the environment, and improve human nutrition.
INRA is recruiting 32 scientists through open competitions and offering permanent positions.
The recruitment campaign is generally aimed at young researchers who have recently obtained their PhD.
