Whatever scientific discipline they have been trained in, researchers depend on laboratory and field activities. In striving for excellence, they discover and create concrete applications, useful for society. Personal research and collective projects overlap to advance knowledge and to contribute to innovation, whether it means producing sustainably, preserving the environment or improving human nutrition.

Positions are open in a wide range of scientific disciplines such as human food and nutrition and metabolism, epidemiology, animal and plant genetics, functional genomics, modelling of complex systems, agrifood process engineering, ecotoxicology, biogeochemical cycles, plant ecophysiology and functional ecology, sociology and economics.
