CTHB-TPCP Internship Programme
The CTHB-TPCP Internship Programme represents a period of experiential learning during which previously learned knowledge and theory is integrated with practical application and skills development in the plant health research environment or professional setting. It provides interns with the opportunity to gain applied experience while affording their mentors/supervisors the opportunity to guide their development. The Programme will prepare interns for careers in the plant health domain or academia by cultivating a range of personal and professional attributes/values.

The Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI; www.fabinet.up.ac.za) based at the University of Pretoria is a globally recognized center with research focused broadly on the health of plants and plant products. The institute also accounts for the fact that the University of Pretoria is listed as one of the world’s top five centers to study fungi.
FABI is happy to announce the availability of two post-doctoral research fellowships dedicated to the study of fungi. More specifically, the successful candidates will conduct research on the fungal genus Fusarium including pursuing questions relating to the taxonomy and evolutionary genomics of these fungi important to plant and human health. At FABI, the post-doctoral fellows will join a large and internationally recognized team of researchers working on a broad range of topics relating to Fusarium species.
The two post-doctoral fellows will work in close collaboration with colleagues at the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute (WI; http://www.westerdijkinstitute.nl) in the Netherlands. They will thus also have opportunities to engage closely with collaborators globally and to benefit from international science networking. Funding for the fellowships will be at a competitive level and dependent on the experience and accomplishments of the incumbents.
