Three month paid internship starting January 2023
The Centre for Forest Protection is a Joint venture led by Forest Research and Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, that combines the strengths and expertise of each organisation. In addition to the state-of-the-art facilities, both organisations hold tree and plant health collections of national importance.
Their science programme supports the UK governments’ forest and tree strategies and the successful delivery of tree planting programmes. Research outcomes will also directly contribute to the improved resilience of the UK’s forests, woodlands and trees and help promote enhanced capacity and capability in forest and tree health research.
There are a number of exciting internships, funded for three months. These positions are open to both undergraduates and graduate students and will run from January to March 2023.
