Description of the course load:
A full time, indivisible position in the field of Translational Plant Biology, within the Department of Life Sciences. This post includes teaching, research and services to the Community.
This includes theory courses and the organisation of practical work sessions in relation to the Department’s teaching programmes in the Bachelor in Biological Sciences, the Bachelor in Veterinary Medicine, the Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology, and the Master in Bioinformatics and Modelling. This represent a workload of approximately 180 to 200 hours/year (theory,repetitions and practical work). Courses may be given in French or English, depending on the course and level of study. In addition to these courses, the successful applicant will supervise students doing placements in laboratories.
As an example, the course load could include the following courses:
The research developed by the candidate will focus on the study of flowering plants and their response to changes in the abiotic environment. The experimental approach will make use of “OMICS” methods (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics or proteomics) and will aim to transfer knowledge from model species, in a context of solving current problems. Additional experience with other photosynthetic organisms will be positively considered during the selection process. These activities will consolidate research in Plant Biology carried out within the Department of Life Sciences and, ideally, will participate in the development of the infrastructures for experimental crops available in the "PhytoSYSTEMS” CARE.
Candidates must demonstrate a high quality scientific production in accordance with the standards of the discipline. They will also be expected to apply to external bodies in order to obtain relevant funding.
Services to of the Community:
The successful applicant will be involved in community service activities, such as promoting their field of research, science in general and ULiège to the general public and potential students. They will also play an active role in the life of the PhytoSYSTEMS CARE, the Department, the Faculty of Sciences and the Institution.
A long-term post-doctoral research stay abroad is a major asset.
The selection procedure will be in accordance with the regulations applied within the University of Liège.
Applicants are requested to submit their applications electronically, to the following address:
Postesacademiques@uliege.be with a copy to email@example.com no later than 28 February 2021.
