Defra Plant Health UG studentships funded by N8 AgriFood, Defra and BSPP

Undergraduates – would you like to experience the exciting world of plant science research, tackle a key science challenge, and be paid for it?

Students can now apply to work on these projects for 8-10 weeks this summer. Successful students will receive £200 per week, plus a contribution of up to £500 towards travel, accommodation or attending a conference. More details here
