INRA is recruiting 37 research scientists until 4 March 2019. You can no longer apply.

Whatever scientific discipline they have been trained in, researchers depend on laboratory and field activities. Involved in scientific networks, they respond to environmental, economic and social issues. 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.

Each year, INRA organises open competitions to recruit research scientists (CRCN). The recruitment campaign is generally aimed at young researchers who have recently obtained their PhD. Candidates are recruited on the basis of their scientific competence which they will put to the service of INRA's major research axes by responding to a research topic. Candidates must have published articles on the results of their PhD.

Positions are open in a wide range of scientific disciplines such as: Agronomy, sylviculture and livestock research - Cell, reproductive and developmental biology - Biology of organisms - Molecular biology - Ecology - Economics - Genetics - Process engineering - Genomics and other -omics - Geosciences - Informatics and artificial intelligence - Neurosciences and behavioural sciences - Nutrition - Probabilities and statistics - Operational research and decision support - Medical and veterinary sciences - Sociology.

Description

Key activities and required skills
National and European policies have promoted both the modernisation of agriculture and its integration in product-specific agri-food chains. Structured around inter-professional organisations designed to regulate each market, agri-food chains have been a major instrument of these policies. However, as recurring crises show, agri-food chains are currently experiencing profound transformations. The successful candidate will study these changes from various perspectives, such as the agri-food chains' market functioning, their capacity to deal with environmental and diet transitions issues, or the role of upstream and downstream actors in transforming farmers' practices. He/she will also be able to study what forms of regulation are emerging at the national and international levels, and the respective roles of sectorial public authorities and dominant actors in their development.
Training required
PhD or equivalent. Specialisation in economic sociology or sociology of public policy will be appreciated, as well as an interest in agriculture or in the agrifood industry. Candidates should have a good command of English, and long-term international experience would also be desirable. Successful candidates who have not yet acquired this experience abroad will be required to do so after their probationary period (1st year).
