Job Opportunity: 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) –
PhD positions within the project "INTERFUTURE": From microbial interactions to new-concept biopesticides and biofertilizers

Innovative Biopesticides and biopesticides: pave the way for sustainable future!
INTERFUTURE is an MCSA ITN for European Industrial Doctorates, which will train a new generation of scientists with complementary and interdisciplinary skills in Microbiology, Plant Pathology, Entomology, Organic Chemistry, Molecular Biology. The main objectives of the research projects are:

  • to overcome bottlenecks in bio-based products application by exploring the ecology of microbe-host interaction at the community level;
  • to improve existing microbial biofertilisers by unravelling the biology and exploiting the complementarities of nitrogen-fixing and growth-promoting bacteria;
  • to exploit natural molecules to shape plant-beneficial microflora and improve plant resilience to disease;
  • to develop novel volatile organic compounds of bacterial origin for the control of soilborne diseases;
  • to design and develop innovative insect traps and trapping strategies based on the activity of kairomones produced by microorganisms.

Job Opportunity:
Postdoc within Entomology and Biological Control

Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, University of Copenhagen (UCPH) invites applications for a position as postdoc within entomology and biological control with focus on using entomopathogenic fungi as a tool in IPM for control of larvae of the cabbage root fly (Delia radicum) in the soil-root interphase. The postdoc will be part of the newly funded European network project FlyIPM under the initiative C-IPM (Coordinated Integrated Pest Management in Europe) which includes 8 countries. The framework of the overall project is presented at http://c-ipm.org/news/nyhed/artikel/getting-to-the-root-of-root-flies/. The activities at UCPH will mainly be coordinated with partners from UK, Ireland and Norway.

Euphresco Strategic Research Agenda 2017-2022

The Euphresco Strategic Research Agenda has been published and is available on the Euphresco website http://www.euphresco.net/media/sra/euphresco_sra.pdf

The research agenda was developed to set the plant health research priorities to address over the next 5-10 years. The objectives listed in the document set a common ground to increase coordination and co-operation between nationally-based, regional and international phytosanitary research programmes.
