My name is Anna Harper. I have handed in my doctoral thesis on agroecology in biological control in cereal crop production with the University of Central Lancashire and I have my viva in a few weeks time. I am passionate about arable and pastoral UK agriculture and aiding farms to explore sustainable practices to potentially reduce economic outlay and preserve environmental resources.
I wonder if you may know of any farming enterprise or agricultural company that is looking for a potential trial researcher, environmental / technical officer or scientist and may be interested in someone who is just about to get a PhD and is at the start of their professional research and publishing career. I do not mind the salary range at all, gaining valuable experience is the main aim. I am based in the North West of England and would like if possible to find a position in this area, livestock or arable.
The research areas that I am interested in and have acquired knowledge in through my undergraduate degree and postgraduate doctorate are –
Agroecology, Arable Agriculture, Sustainable Agriculture.
I have attached my CV, academic CV and Cover Letter for consideration. Please feel free to pass the documents on if anyone may be interested or contact me direct.
Many thanks, Anna
