Rothamsted Research is looking to recruit two enthusiastic, organised and adaptable persons to assist with our work on applied arable field trials as Field Trial Technicians. Both of our roles will involve mostly field related tasks, including machinery operation and maintenance, data recording and applications of treatments and on a wide range of crops. One of the roles will lead the spraying of our crops and whilst it would be desirable if the candidate has experience of crop spraying, training will be provided where necessary.

The successful candidates will need to be physically fit, have good attention to detail and have a genuine interest in field trials. The roles will involve use of standard agricultural equipment as well as specialised plot machinery and a variety of computer software packages. The work will involve paid overtime during peak periods when it is essential to complete field work in good conditions and to a high standard.

To be successful in these roles you will need to be self-motivated, have a flexible approach to work, have an agriculturally related qualification and recent experience of modern agricultural systems and machinery. Experience of field trials and GPS systems would be an advantage. You will also need good communication skills to liaise with work colleagues and scientific staff to ensure that the required high quality of work is achieved.
