PSC PhD recruitment
In cooperation with the Life Science Zurich Graduate School we offer an online application system for the recruitment of international and national PhD students. Applications are evaluated twice a year (July and December) by an admission committee. We organize the interviews and invite high-priority PhD candidates to Zurich for your open position.
The PSC organizes a large variety of outreach activities to make plant science research visible and understandable to the public. Our activities include plant science expeditions for families and training workshops for school teachers. Every year on 18 May, the International Fascination of Plant Days takes place, with many local activities. Our members are invited to take advantage of our established networks and platforms.
Outreach Strategy Assistance
A growing number of research-funding institutions require that a portion of project effort and budget go towards translating scientific work into societal gain. In coordination with principal investigators at the grant-preparation stage, the PSC can put together packages of outreach projects tailored to a broad range of plant science themes. PSC staff have extensive experience in training of public school instructors, creation of e-learning content, coordination of public events, and targeted outreach to stakeholders.
