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 will be open in numerous fields of research: human nutrition, intestinal microbiota, plant genetics, animal genetics, quantitative genetics, population dynamics and genomics, neurobiology of behaviour, animal nutrition, plant ecophysiology, functional and behavioural ecology, modelling of plant cell walls, process engineering and biotechnology, systems biology and synthetic biology, animal health, life science and environmental mathematics and informatics, economics, sociology and organizational sciences.
