  INRA is recruiting 50 experienced research scientists 

Working as a scientist at INRA means putting your passion for discovery to work and addressing major societal challenges such as nutrition that meets people’s needs, competitive and sustainable agriculture and protecting the environment. It is also about expressing your creativity and attaining scientific excellence as part of a unit in an effort to expand knowledge that will lead to concrete and innovative applications society can use.

In 2015, the Institute is looking to recruit 40 research directors and 9 research managers to strengthen its research teams. The project-based recruitment is open to applicants who have several years of experience and are able to develop and carry out research projects.

New this year: Register online!

Online registration is now available on a trial basis. Feedback on the experience will help us to improve the process for future open competition examinations. Registration via paper applications is also still an option.
Registration is open from 2 July through 1 September 2015 for online registrations and through 3 September for paper applications.

INRA is recruiting 49 experienced researchers in 2015

Being an INRA researcher means participating in high-quality research that serves the interests of society. It also means advancing our state of knowledge and contributing to the development of innovative solutions that will allow us to produce food sustainably, preserve the environment, and improve the quality of the foods we eat. INRA uses open competitions to recruit experienced researchers who are proficient at designing and conducting research projects. Applications were open from 2 July to 3rd September 2015. You can no longer apply.

Callitris tuberculata: the most drought-resistant tree in the world

In a context of climate change and forest fragility, an international consortium of scientists led by INRA1 have identified the world’s most drought-resistant tree species in the world. Results of the study, which appear in the June issue of Plant Physiology, were obtained using an instrumental analysis of the cavitation process, and provide new leads for the adaptation of trees to future climate change.
