The ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis is currently looking for Honours students interested in photosynthesis research projects.
Our Honours projects provide training in a cutting edge techniques; spanning laboratory and field science, genetics, biochemistry, physiology and modelling. You will work with internationally recognised scientists on exciting projects that are tackling real-world problems, such as climate change and food security.
Honours scholarships available
The Centre of Excellence offers a number of $7,000 scholarships each year.
For more information about who to contact and how to apply, contact:
Megan Hemming, CoETP Chief Operating Officer e-mail: email@example.com
The Centre has state-of-the-art plant science research facilities at its six nodes, including ANU, the University of Queensland, the University of Sydney, Western Sydney University, CSIRO and the International Institute for Rice Research (IRRI) located in the Philippines.
We provide students with an unique opportunity to work with internationally recognised leaders in exciting photosynthesis research projects from one of the following programs:
- Improving leaf carbon dioxide capture efficiency
- Improving light energy capture efficiency
- Exploiting photosynthetic variation
- Linking leaf function and the field performance of crops
Contacts and topics for potential Honours projects in 2017 include:
