Plant Health Undergraduate Summer Studentships 2018

5th Mar 2018

Last year the UKPSF launched a pilot scheme providing paid studentships with leading plant health researchers to four undergraduates, funded by Defra.

This year the scheme returns, with nine studentships available.
Funding for the 2018 scheme is generously provided by Defra, BSPP and N8 AgriFood.

  • Detection or Control
  • Data & Modelling
  • Trade
  • Host plants / earth observations
  • High-risk pests or pathogens
  • Knowledge Exchange
  • Oak Health
  • Social research – biosecurity behaviours
