·         Experience in plant science and mathematical modelling is not mandatory but is preferable

·         Excellent English is mandatory


Main responsibilities:

·         Conduct cutting-edge plant science research

·         Supervising PhD students, participation in teaching (courses on bioinformatics and genomics)

·         Writing grant proposals and assisting with grant management
