Poste :

To meet food and nutritional security challenges, agriculture strategy targeting sustainability of production and consumption patterns need to central. In this context, legume crops could play an important role by delivering multiple services in line with sustainability principles. Legume crops are important staple crops not only for food security, but also for combatting malnutrition, alleviating poverty, improving human health and enhancing agricultural sustainability. Within this group of crops, chickpea and lentil are one of the major produced legumes in Morocco. These two crops can play important role within a predominant cereal-legume cropping system by delivering multiple services in line with sustainable crop production. In Morocco, production and productivity of both chickpea and lentil are not stable and the major causes are poor agronomic and crop management practices. As for all legumes, these two crops are among the most under fertilized crops. This may be one of the reasons of the low yield. Previous studies have shown wide genetic variability for phosphorus and potassium uptake in lentil. It is also known that phosphorus and potassium have positive effect on seed quality. Improving agronomic practices together with the development of new efficient germplasm with good response to fertilization will enhance the production and productivity and contribute in improving food and nutrition security among poor households. Within this Ph.D. project, we suggest to investigate the genetic variability and the response to nutrients supply in chickpea and lentil germplasm collections in order to identify new high yielding germplasm with an adequate response to nutrients’ inputs and high nutritional quality. Main Objectives: The purpose of this Ph.D. project is to: ­ Genome Wide Association (GWAS) for plant efficient nutrients uptake/use and potential correlations with seed nutritional quality value ­ Investigate the genetic variability and the response to nutrients supply in chickpea/lentil germplasm ­ Identify new high yielding germplasm with adequate response to nutrients’ inputs ­ Identify superior germplasm with combined efficient nutrients uptake/use and high nutritional seed quality Responsibilities and tasks planned: The work will focus on: ­ Field screening and evaluation of large germplasm collection for agronomic and physiological target traits ­ Controlled conditions experiments under different nutrients/water treatments ­ Lab. experiments and evaluation of seed nutritional quality value in response to different water/nutrients treatments. ­ Bibliographic review ­ Data collection, treatment and analysis ­ Reports and scientific publications. Skills required for the position: The candidate must have: • Master's degree or equivalent degree in agronomy, plant physiology, plant nutrition and biofortification, abiotic stress resistance, • An appropriate scientific background allowing him/her to deal with research questions, being able to mobilize the main experimental approaches available in the field and under controlled conditions • Sufficient scientific and methodological insight to understand the level of relevance of research approaches and to be able to combine them in an astute way in the analysis, definition, and resolution of project problems • A minimum experience allowing him/her to move forward quickly and efficiently in a bibliographic analysis on a given theme and in the writing of scientific journals and articles. • Have experience in carrying out research and ability to learn • Rigor / motivation, good communication skills, Teamwork • Fulfil the English language requirement Applications and selection procedure: The application folder must contain: ­ Cover letter outlining research experience, achievements, research interests and how the candidate’s scientific profile relates to the required position, ­ Curriculum vitae, ­ Names and contact information of two reference persons
