Open position at AnaEE-ERIC Project Manager

7 November 2022 - 26 November 2022
AnaEE-ERIC, the Intergovernmental Research Organization for Experimental Ecology, is seeking a Project Manager for its headquarters, located in Gif-sur-Yvette, near Paris (France).

The Analysis and Experimentation on Ecosystems, European Research Infrastructure Consortium (AnaEE-ERIC), is an intergovernmental research organization established under the European Council (EC) regulation 723/2009 on the community legal framework for European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) legal status.
AnaEE-ERIC provides tools to understand the multiple global change drivers on terrestrial and aquatic continental ecosystems across Europe. It proposes access to a distributed, versatile network of facilities that can simulate environmental drivers from land-use change, pollution, biological invasions, rising atmospheric greenhouse gases concentrations, and to increasing extreme events such as droughts and heatwaves.
AnaEE-ERIC provides access for research teams to these experimental, analytical, and modelling platforms. The outcome of these research will lead to a better understanding of ecosystem functions and services, and recommendations to the stakeholders (agriculture, industry, policy makers, NGOs) for the mitigation and adaptation of ecosystems to anthropic induced changes.
AnaEE-ERIC is involved in large projects funded by the framework program of the European Union (Horizon Europe).
AnaEE-ERIC includes 4 centres: the Central Hub, headquarters, located in France, the Data and Modelling Centre, in Italy, the Interface and Synthesis Centre, in the Czech Republic, and the Technology Centre, in Denmark, and a distributed network of about 60 experimental, analytic and modelling platforms.
