SCIENTIFIC LIFE FOR STUDENTS

SOFIA IQBAL

“Being a PhD student at the world’s oldest agricultural research institute, which is at the forefront of science and innovation, is a great place to start a career in research. I really benefit from the weekly visiting speakers and seminars on-site, as well as the regular training in a variety of disciplines from data analysis to thesis writing and everything in-between.”

“I applied to do a PhD at Rothamsted Research because of the world-leading science, across multiple disciplines, that is carried out here. The breadth of research areas, ranging from insect ecology to wheat genetic improvement, and from soil science to crop protection, are unlike any other research institute or university.”

“As well as formal support (mentoring, supervision and training), the community of students at Rothamsted is so varied, you will never have trouble seeking support from your peers. As well as this, you are surrounded by world-class scientists and technicians, who have an array of skills, and are always willing to help.”

The Institute offers a series of progressive experimental design and statistics courses that are very well structured and delivered.”

“Outside of my PhD, I am trying to make the most of living so close to London, which is only 30 minutes away by train. I’ve also enjoyed the range of social events on at the Institute, from the annul Sports Day to Halloween celebrations, and of course the student cheese and wine social!”
