Broadening the reach of the plant sciences
The Plant Science Center (PSC) leverages its cross-university mission and organization to advance ambitious research initiatives. Our 700 member scientists represent a wide spectrum of plant-related disciplines, and the PSC provides a nexus for approaching questions in the plant sciences that require coordinated effort. The PSC provides platforms for intellectual interaction and a source for PhD and Postdoctoral fellowships for students ready to face these challenges.
PhD and Postdoc Funding and Fellowship Programs
The PSC actively seeks and manges funds for PhD and Postdoc fellowships. It links top students from around the world with principal investigators researching pressing topics in plant sciences. The 7th Framework Marie Curie Actions (EU), the Mercator Foundation Switzerland, the Swiss National Science Foundation, and Syngenta all provide opportunities through the PSC for advanced studies in Switzerland and in prominent laboratories around the world.
