NIAB is committed to training the next generation of plant and crop scientists by providing courses in a range of subjects. For graduate students interested in studying for a PhD we have excellent resources for research in molecular plant science, quantitative genetics, breeding, transgenic technology and plant pathology. NIAB's site in Cambridge provides first-rate laboratory facilities linked to a capability to study crop plants in controlled environments, glasshouses and in field plots. The majority of our PhD studentships are funded by grants.
We will have paid roles available between March - October 2017, ranging from four weeks to twelve months, based at our regional centres and in Cambridge.
