I – Order from the Rector
This call is open by order issued by the Rector of UNL, on February 18th, 2019, upon the establishment of a
Contract Program between ITQB NOVA and FCT, I.P., confirming the existence of a specific budget for that
purpose and that the workplace mentioned in this advertisement is already foreseen within the framework
of ITQB NOVA human resources.

II – Job description:
1) Work place:
Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier
Address : Av. da República, 2780-157 Oeiras

2) Duties to be performed:
The procedure is open for recruitment of a Researcher to the Scientific Area of Plant Sciences, sub-area Ecophysiology and Phenotyping. The work will involve starting-up a new laboratory to develop studies of biotic and abiotic interactions in plants, at the genetic and molecular level, in laboratory and field conditions, and the use of precision phenotyping to relate genomics to plant ecophysiology and agronomy, exploring the wide range of techniques currently available to evaluate plant performance and productivity, and considering the efficiency of use of resources.
Recent advances in the development of molecular and genetic tools to accelerate plant breeding, as well as the possibility of quantitatively assessing crop characteristics (such as yield or disease resistance) allow the application of information systems providing methods and interfaces for interoperability of data sets from different sources. It is thus expected that the researcher will explore the mechanistic understanding of plant responses to the environment and climate change by establishing strategic collaborations at the academic level both within and outside the Institute, but also with the private sector.

Applications must be submitted until the 4th June 2019.
