Research Posts in Molecular Plant Virology Post-harvest Technology at University of Greenwich
And The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) (www.nri.org) is an internationally renowned multi-disciplinary centre of the University of Greenwich that undertakes research, consultancy and training to support sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries. NRI is expanding its teams working on Post-Harvest Technology and Molecular Plant Virology and is seeking three dynamic self-starting Researchers to join highly experienced and respected teams with strong international links. The Molecular Plant Virology Group is undertaking research on the diversity of tropical viruses, particularly those affecting sweet potato and cassava with emphasis on sustained crop resistance, validating detection methods using PCR techniques, and to contribute to surveys of virus prevalence. The Post-Harvest Group focuses specifically on tropical root and tuber crops (sweet potato, cassava and yam) researching such issues as storage and value addition. You should be ambitious and flexible with an ability to undertake research but also put research into use. NRI currently has some 40 research students, undertaking MSc by Research, MPhil and PhD degrees.
