Internship contract at the M2 level : Impact of cultivar mixtures on the local evolution of a sexually active plant pathogen population

INRA, France

 

Working environment

"Impact of cultivar mixtures on the local evolution of a sexually active plant pathogen population: case study of the interepidemic transmission of a virulence in Zymoseptoria tritici"

We are searching a highly-motivated MSc student (Master2) by plant disease epidemiology, to work on the impact of host population heterogeneity in field on local adaptation and evolution of a sexually active plant pathogen population. The project aims to elucidate the question: How do wheat cultivar mixtures impact the interepidemic transmission of a virulence in a Zymoseptoria tritici population at the field scale?

Training and skills required

Candidates must have a strong interest in plant disease epidemiology and microbiology, combining field, greenhouse and lab experiments. Experience in evolutionary biology, biophysics, modelling programming and/or statistical analyses (e.g. in R) is not required but is clearly an advantage.
