Job advertisement Agroscope, Zurich, SwitzerlandResearch Associate – Control of plant diseases in ecological cropping systems

Introduction
Fungal plant diseases in arable crops lead to severe losses in yield and quality. To reduce the application of synthetic fungicides and the emission of harmful substances in the environment, we investigate strategies for the sustainable control of fungal diseases in organic and integrated cereal and potato cropping systems.

Tasks
You are responsible for the development of methods and strategies to control seed borne cereal diseases, to replace copper in organic potato production and for optimisation of our forecasting systems. You plan and coordinate laboratory and field experiments to develop efficient practice-oriented products and cropping measures reducing plant diseases. Direct control measures include physical methods and the application of botanicals or antagonists. Your tasks involve also the participation in international project teams, authoring of publications, acquirement of third party funds and the collaboration in phytopathology related expert groups.
