To continue in our series of visits to broaden your views of career path after your PhD in Molecular Plant Sciences, and after visiting in the past years a few plant biotech companies in Europe, we are this year planning a visit to the Swiss Federal Research Stations (Agroscope) at Reckenholz and Wädenswil (both near Zurich).
Both research stations feature projects in plant molecular biology, including in genetics, plant-insect interactions, and a large experimental field for testing GMO and plants produced by genome editing (read more HERE).
- Soil ecological engineering and microbiome (Dr. Marcel van der Heijden)
- Apple breeding and genetics (Dr. Markus Kellerhals)

Travel to both stations will be done from Zurich train station, either by public transport or by a rental van.
