Assistant plant breeder (soft fruit)

As an assistant plant breeder, I am involved in all practical aspects of the strawberry breeding programmes in the Genetics, Genomics and Breeding department. I provide scientific and organisational support for the crop genetic improvement projects at NIAB East Malling. I currently assist with the operation of on-site trials including plant propagation and micropropagation using meristem excision. I also provide technical assistance with plant patent applications.
