My last post (Building the Plant Health Profession) called for applications from academic researchers to offer undergraduate summer studentships that address Plant Health research. We had a good response and applications are now open for undergraduates to apply for one of 9 studentships to run this summer. The skills focus on offer is varied, from developing pioneering disease detection technology to analysing the impact of trade on woody species to developing river-baiting techniques for studying disease transmission by water. The 9 studentships are located across the UK, from Edinburgh, to Belfast, the Midlands, Lancashire, Yorkshire, East Anglia and Kent. Hopefully undergraduates will find a quality opportunity near where they have accommodation, though some of these will offer help if the student is willing to relocate. Deadline is 9th May 2018. Maybe you know someone who might be interested? It’s a fantastic opportunity to see the diverse opportunities in Plant Health. Please share.
