PhD position at AGROTECNIO Center – University of Lleida

Agrotecnio Center, a CERCA center located in Lleida, Spain invites applications for a well-qualified candidate to work on research towards a PhD degree at the University of Lleida within the framework of a multidisciplinary project involving different groups at the Center.

The scholarship is for an initial period of 24 months, starting on 1 October 2013 but will be extended for another 2 years depending on performance. The selected candidate will develop a research program focused on Optimizing nitrogen use in cereal crops under Mediterranean agriculture, working in a multidisciplinary environment under the co-supervision of Drs Roxana Savin (Crop Physiology Lab) and Carlos Cantero (Agronomy Lab). Supervision will also be provided for research work on particular aspects of the research program by Drs Teresa Capell and Paul Christou (Molecular Biology and Biotechnology), Jordi Voltas (NUE through analysis of stable isotopes) and Ramón Albajes (Entomology).

It is expected that the successful candidate:

(i) will have a degree in agronomy, biotechnology or biology with high grades (not less than an average of 2, scale 0-4)

(ii) must qualify  to be registered as a Doctoral Student at the UdL (possessing or being very close to finishing a Master Degree for candidates who have got a degree in Spain, or possessing a degree giving access to doctorate studies for overseas candidates)

(ii) must be fluent in spoken and written English (proficiency in Spanish is an advantage, though not a requirement)

(iii) should be able (and enjoy) working as part of multidisciplinary and multicultural teams

We offer an attractive working environment, a scholarship of approximated 13.671,84 euros per year, and our full support for the candidate to apply for scholarships (from the Spanish or the Catalan system) to complete the PhD degree.

Qualified candidates should send a CV (including the names, positions and contact e-mail and phone number of two academic referees able to provide letters of recommendation) to Drs. Roxana Savin (savin@pvcf.udl.cat) and Carlos Cantero (carlos.cantero@pvcf.udl.cat) at your earliest convenience, and not later than the 14th of September 2013.

Please note that only short-listed candidates will be contacted

For any further information, please feel free to contact Drs. Roxana Savin or Carlos Cantero.
