PhD Studentships

We fund young and exciting PhD students to increase new talent and ideas into our agricultural and horticultural sectors.

The aims of the AHDB PhD Studentship Programme are to:

  • Develop the next generation of technical experts for the agriculture and horticulture industries
  • Deliver useable scientific developments that are relevant to industry and AHDB strategy priorities
  • Communicate findings of this research effectively with levy payers

Once a year, we bring together AHDB-funded students from universities across the UK to share their knowledge and expertise at our student conference, and they have the opportunity to learn more about our industries by visiting a variety of agricultural and horticultural businesses during the course of their studentship.
