Postgraduate Students Association for the Natural and Agricultural Sciences (PSANA)
One of PSANA’s chief aims is to advertise a variety of opportunities including jobs, bursaries, scholarships and postdoctoral to postgraduate students. To facilitate this we have created a special Opportunities board. Please return often to view new opportunities. All opportunities without a closing date will be left for a period of five months after they have been posted. If you know of an opportunity please feel free to e-mail it to the webmaster - james.mehl[a]fabi.up.ac.za (replace [a] with @).
