The chair group Horticulture & Product Physiology
Together with a consortium of an inter-disciplinary team of researchers and companies, we have started a large research programme of 17 PhDs/Postdocs entitled SKY HIGH: Vertical farming, a revolution in plant production | NWO

The chair group Horticulture and Product Physiology conducts high impact research and educates students providing the scientific basis required to answer questions that are of utmost importance for sustainable crop production and product quality in horticulture.

The research focus is on how physiological processes in crops, plants and plant organs interact with the abiotic environment and how this affects crop production and product quality. Questions arising from horticultural practice are translated into fundamental research topics, aiming to explain mechanisms. The research and education contributes to sustainably feeding the World with healthy high-quality products.
The chair group is an international team consisting of 14 permanent staff members, about 25 PhD candidates and postdocs and a number of guest researchers. Each year about 40 MSc students conduct their thesis study (a 6-month research) at our group. We organize and participate in a variety of courses for BSc and MSc students to transfer knowledge on horticulture (pre- and post harvest), environmental physiology and product quality.

More info about the chair group can be found at www.hpp.wur.nl

This project is a collaboration with the Centre for Crop Systems Analysis (CSA) at Wageningen UR (www.csa.wur.nl ). CSA contributes to the development of high quality plant production in sustainable agro-ecosystems through research and teaching. The emphasis is on improvement and innovation of plant production at various levels of integration; from genotypes to cropping systems and production chains. The group's core expertise is the quantification of complex and often non-linear interactions between plants (or genotypes), management and the environment (G×M×E).

We will recruit for the vacancy ourselves, so no employment agencies please. However, sharing in your network is appreciated.
