Professor of Plant Physiological Ecology
University of Paris at Orsay
The University of Paris at Orsay is likely to have a position open in
2005 for a Professor of Plant Ecophysiology. The position will be in
the Laboratory of Ecology, Systematics and Evolution with a research
group that studies the environmental controls of carbon and water
fluxes at several scales (ranging from the cellular to the ecosystem
levels). The ideal candidate is an ecophysiologist that works in the
fields of trace gas flux (especially CO2 and H2O at scales ranging
from the leaf to the whole plant to intact ecosystems), chlorophyll
fluorescence, or stable isotope mass spectroscopy (13C).
Mathematical modeling skills at one or more levels of organization
would be a plus. The candidate is expected to participate in
teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in general ecology and
specialized courses in plant ecophysiology.
The position is a French civil service position and, therefore, is a
permanent position that requires several years of post-doctoral
experience. French citizenship is not required, but basic French
language skills are essential. The application is a two-step process
that requires an initial application due on 19 October 2004.
The University of Paris-Sud at Orsay is a science-oriented campus
with approximately 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The
campus is located on the southern outskirts of Paris in a pleasant,
forested landscape (web site: www.u-psud.fr). Several laboratories in
the near vicinity house additional expertise in the fields of plant
physiology, remote sensing, plant-atmosphere interactions, and global
climate models. More details on the lab are on www.ese.u-psud.fr.
Please contact Prof. Gabriel Cornic (gabriel.cornic at ese.u-psud.fr) or
Prof. Paul Leadley (paul.leadley at ese.u-psud.fr) for further
information and assistance in preparing an application. This is a
re-advertisement of a position initially opened in 2004.
