We've worked with plant scientists to create four excellent projects that address major plant health challenges identified by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
Students can now apply to work on these projects for 8-10 weeks this summer, with selected students receiving £300 per week.
Eligibility requirements are given below.
We are grateful to Defra for funding this programme.
These placements are a great way to:
As well as being paid, successful applicants will receive a year’s free student membership of the Royal Society of Biology.
To apply for one of these studentships, contact the supervisor using the link on the project page, sending your CV and explaining why you are interested in the project. Applications must be received before 17:00 on 30th April 2017.
The scheme is open to undergraduate students registered at a UK institution for the majority of their science degree. Students will normally take up the award during the summer vacation in the middle years (i.e. 2/3, 2/4 or 3/4) of their degree but final year undergraduates intending to continue to Masters or PhD may also be considered. Mature students are eligible to apply.
Students will be required to submit a short (2-4 sides of A4) report on completion of their project, a selection of which will be included in relevant RSB, UKPSF and Member Organisation publications.
Please email queries to UKPSF.
