Andrew Lloyd, laureate of a postdoctoral fellowship as part of the Marie Curie Actions

Andrew Lloyd has been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship in the framework of a European project supported by the UMR Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin.

In the context of the European project (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IOF) conducted by the Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin (INRA Versailles-Grignon), Andrew Lloyd benefits from a Marie Curie postdoctoral International outgoing fellowship for career development (IOF) for three years (2014-2017).

In the context of the European project (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IOF) conducted by the Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin (INRA Versailles-Grignon), Andrew Lloyd benefits from a Marie Curie postdoctoral International outgoing fellowship for career development (IOF) for three years.

 

International postdoctoral fellowship

International outgoing fellowships for career development (IOF) are part of the Marie Curie Actions of the European People programme (FP7-2013). These individual awards are aimed at experienced researchers, members of the European Union and associated countries, wishing to receive training in the field of research in a host institution in a third country (outside Europe). This training is based on an initial stay of one to two years in a third country, followed by a reintegration phase in EU member state or an associated country.

 

Meiosis in Sand Rock-cress

During these three years, Andrew will share his time between Harvard University (U.S., 2014-2016) and INRA Versailles-Grignon Centre (FR, 2016-2017). Within the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and the Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin which supports the project FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IOF, Andrew will work on meiosis in Sand Rock-cress or Arabidopsis arenosa, a species that has the distinction of being autotetraploid, that is to say it has four homologous copies of each chromosome.

An extensive programme within a research unit where Arabis, especially Arabidopsis thaliana, is in the limelight.
