One-year internships in Phytosanitation and Biosecurity

The FABI Internship Programme in Phytosanitation and Biosecurity, is designed to expand the depth and breadth of the interns’ previous academic learning in the plant health domain. The Programme draws from the expertise of multiple stakeholders and the training is coordinated with the needs of relevant industries, organizations and government. Our vision is that this Programme prepares interns for careers in the forestry and agricultural sectors. Interns will be trained to provide technical support to improve the updating of outdated import requirements; assist with a higher turnover of completed pest risk information packages and pest risk assessments, as well as to contribute to pest and disease diagnostic and extension, surveillance and biological control programs.

Applications are now open for the appointment of interns, starting 1 February 2022. The closing date for applications is 22 November 2021.
