Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) at the University of Pretoria is inviting all persons to apply for the ongoing Internship Programme.
Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) Internship in Phytosanitation and Biosecurity
The FABI Internship Programme provides interns with a period of experiential learning during which previously acquired knowledge and theory are integrated with practical application and skills development in the plant health research environment or professional setting.
It thus provides interns with the opportunity to gain applied experience, while affording their mentors/supervisors the opportunity to guide their development.
Our vision is that the initiative prepares interns for careers in the forestry and agricultural sectors.
Eligibility and stipends
- South African graduates with a minimum of a BSc Horn degree or a four-year BSc Agric degree. These may include specialization in a range of fields in the biological and agricultural sciences (e.g., genetics, entomology, microbiology, plant pathology, plant breeding, plant production, agricultural extension, etc.).
- Preferred applicants are those whose appointment would contribute towards achieving demographic representation in FABI.
