A strong undergraduate (and ideally masters) degree in genetics, biology, chemistry or plant science is expected. Experience working with data analysis/statistical techniques/fieldwork sampling are desirable but not essential, as full training will be provided in all techniques relevant for the project. However, a willingness to collect data outside is essential. If you are not sure if you have the relevant background please feel free to contact the supervisors to discuss the project.
