Postdoc - Plant Electrophysiology

Agroscope, Switzerland


Work Contract

“Research Project PISA - Platform applying Intelligent Signal Analysis to Gain Insights to Plant Electrophysiology”

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at Agroscope (, the Swiss centre of excellence for agricultural research, affiliated with the Federal Office for Agriculture.

Our group (greenhouse crops) has a broad know-how and knowledge in greenhouse crops and F&V quality. The project is funded by the Commission for Technology for Innovation, commonly called CTI (

The project aims are to design a multi-channel electrophysiology biosensor, to use the biosensor to record electrical signals from high value greenhouse crops and then to apply advanced data mining techniques to characterize the signals and develop classification models of specific plant stimuli. This research supports Agroscope's goal of developing real-time greenhouse management systems using non-destructive monitoring. The present CTI project aims at to develop a multichannel plant electrophysiology biosensor for both basic and applied plant research and for agricultural application in greenhouse producers.

Job Specification

  • Electrophysiology and physiology measurement and analyses on tomato plant in greenhouses.
  • Manage trials with abiotic (water, nutrition, salinity) and biotic (spider mites) stresses
  • Collaborate with our partners  which develop the hardware and software part of the project
  • Valorization of the work (publication and/or symposium)

Job Profile

  • Plant physiologist / Plant Electrophysiology / Plant biology
  • Good level in English (spoken and written)
  • Enthusiasm
