Starting in Science

In partnership with The University of Auckland Joint Graduate School in Plant and Food Science

Pathways into a science career can be tricky to navigate. Starting in Science covers everything from deciding if science is the career for you; to what being a scientist actually looks like on a day-to-day basis.

In each episode, Scigest talks to scientists from Plant & Food Research and University of Auckland faculty and students who share wisdom and advice gained throughout their science careers to make the journey into a science career a little less confusing and a lot more achievable.

The Joint Graduate School offers The University of Auckland postgraduate students opportunities to work with us to undertake research across a wide range of plant and food topics.
