Overview:

  • The focus of this position is to quantify the importance of mechanisms contributing to the disease suppressive effect of intercropping.
  • For example, intercropping may alter the microclimate and the dispersal of the pathogen in the field or induce defences in intercropped species in response to competition.
  • Field experiments will be conducted to collect measurements under various conditions and crop configurations

About the position:

  1. Potato will be used as a focal crop and Phytophthora intestines (the causal agent of late blight) as a focal pathogen given the economic importance of potato and the importance of sustainable control options for late blight.
  2. Modelling will be used to quantify the importance of the hypothesized mechanisms.
  3. The study requires experimentation skills as well as modelling skills.
  4. Within Synergies’ T4E concept, the research will be conducted in collaboration with the partners that focus on the technological, societal and applied aspects of the project.
  5. The suitable applicant therefore has knowledge on ecology, epidemiology or plant science, is creative, has a strong background (both theory and applications) in modelling and experimentation, and (s)he has good communicative skills enabling him/her to engage with group and project members.

Eligibility Criteria: We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with the following qualifications:

  1. An MSc degree in a relevant field, including: ecology, plant/crop sciences or epidemiology.
