AGROECOLOGIST - PhD RESEARCHER

NAME Izzadora Andrew JOB Agroecologist - PhD Researcher COMPANY Rothamsted AGE 26 SALARY* Tax free stipend £10 - £15,000 *industry average

I work for Rothamsted, the longest running agricultural research station in the world – over 170 years old!  I feel like I’m really contributing to answering some of life’s vital questions, such as how we’re going to support life on this planet, feed the population, but also look after our natural environment.  My research involves looking at weeds, how they impact on crops and reduce the amount of food we produce.  We’re losing vast amounts of food from these plants being present.  My advice for getting into a role like mine would be to enjoy your studies and do a degree in environmental biology or agriculture.  I would also suggest that you carry out some voluntary work in the sector as it will do vast amounts to make you more employable.
