The men and women of INRA are taking an active part in meeting major challenges: ensuring food and nutritional security for 9 billion people; managing the resources of our planet more sustainably without compromising biodiversity and health; and combating climate change: “this collective and demanding mission, fuelled by the right balance between fundamental and applied research, is above all a human adventure”, said Philippe Mauguin, INRA President, at the 2017 INRA Awards ceremony.

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.

Positions will be open in numerous fields of research:  agronomy and animal husbandry, reproductive and behavioural biology, molecular biology, ecology, economics, genetics, process engineering, genomics and other -omics, geography and geomatics, informatics and artificial intelligence, instrumentation, robotics and imaging, mathematics, mathematics and informatics for living organisms and the environment, nutrition, medical and veterinary sciences.
