The threats from pests and diseases are a major concern to the UK, and to the nation’s gardeners in particular. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), through its research and advisory activities, is well placed to identify plant health threats and respond by raising awareness and developing and sharing best practice.
 
This newly established role will lead the RHS’s research programme on the epidemiology, control and management of plant pests and diseases, and provide advice and information on the control and management of such pests to RHS members and the public.
 
The successful candidate will have a PhD in entomology, plant pathology or a related discipline as well as at least five years post-doctoral level research or equivalent experience, as evidenced by an appropriate publication record. A thorough knowledge of plant pest epidemiology, control and management in a garden or commercial horticultural environment is required together with knowledge of appropriate research techniques. The successful candidate will have the ability to communicate to scientists and the public, and will be able to work effectively as part of a team and using their own initiative.
 
For further information about the role please contact Gerard Clover, Head of Plant Health by email: gerardclover@rhs.org.ukTo apply, please visit our website http://www.rhs.org.uk/about-the-rhs/work-for-the-rhs/vacancies
