Team Lead Phytopathology Dümmen Orange

As Team Lead Phytopathology you focus on the Technology Applications service department of phytopathology, making sure that developed phytopathology bio-assays are used to improve the global Dümmen Orange breeding programs for resistance traits. Your tasks are to evaluate the performance of the trials, optimize bio-assay efficiency, determine and report on Key Performance Indicators, implement software systems for track-and-trace of the bio-assays and develop a strategy for the long-term activities within Phytopathology Technology Applications. The activities are a dynamic mix of hands-on activities in the greenhouse, guiding the team members in their tasks, communicating with internal and external service providers and aligning with internal stakeholders from Breeding and Technology Development. In the first period you will report to the Research Director in De Lier and later on to the Global Lead Technology Applications.
