Specialty Trial Coordinator Intern or Co-op – #01RWH
The production agriculture environment is more challenging today than ever before. In this climate, maximizing profit on every acre is more important than ever. Making that happen takes an integrated approach that includes top tier genetics, innovative traits, novel chemistries, biological solutions, and data generated in real-world situations that allows each grower to pick the perfect solution for every acre on their farm. The Global Trait and Pipeline Delivery team (TPD) of Monsanto leverages motivated team members and cutting edge technology working in an environment of constant innovation to deliver the data that makes these integrated solutions a reality. Interns in the TPD organization can expect to be integrated into one of our field teams and asked to design, execute, and ultimately present on a project which provides a data-driven solution that enhances our ability to offer innovative products to the marketplace. As a part of the internship, you will be exposed to the same proprietary technology to which our researchers have access, have opportunity to work with our innovative scientists and plant breeders, and gain insight into the day-to-day responsibilities of our team members and the dynamic culture of Monsanto.
