The successful applicant will be based at the Centre for Crop Systems Analysis
(CSA) and will be co-supervised by the Plant Production Systems Group (PPS). In addition, the candidate will work closely with staff from Wageningen Research in preparing and analysing samples for the metabolomics studies.
CSA is a federation of two chair groups, which are closely interacting in all aspects of their daily activities. The chair groups include Crop physiology and Crop and weed ecology. The candidate will be a member of the Crop physiology chair. Both chairs are strongly committed to excellent research and teaching providing the scientific basis for the development of high-quality plant production in sustainable agro-ecosystems. CSA focuses on understanding the functioning of crops from underlying physiological and community ecological processes. The Centre for Crop Systems Analysis also seeks synergy with social sciences for greater impact of research and teaching.
