Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) within FP7 Initial Training Network "CropLife"

Eleven Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions and two ER positions are in the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) CropLife entitled "Enhanced plant productivity through control of lifespan”. CropLife focuses on leaf lifespan as major a determinant of plant productivity and aims to gain a greater understanding of the basic mechanism and genetic control of senescence and to develop new breeding strategies for prolonging leaf photosynthesis and delaying senescence processes. The network focuses on barley as a mojar temperate grain crop and perennial ryegrass as a biomass and forage crop.
CropLife provides intersectorial experience by integrating partners from the public and private sectors in six European countries. The training programme includes state-of-the-art local training activities and network-wide courses, summer schools, workshops as well as courses on complementary skills. The ESRs will benefit from high quality training, secondments in partner laboratories and intersectorial visits. We are looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated people, who will fully engage in the team spirit of a dynamic interdisciplinary research group.
