PhD Opportunities


Our PhD projects provide training in cutting edge techniques; spanning laboratory and field science, genetics, biochemistry, physiology and modelling. Our students work with internationally recognised scientists on exciting projects that are tackling real-world problems, such as climate change and food security.

Students have the opportunity to work in exciting photosynthesis research projects within 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

The Centre has state-of-the-art plant science research facilities on its six nodes, including The Australian National University, the University of Queensland, the University of Sydney, the University of Western Sydney, CSIRO and the International Institute for Rice Research (IRRI) located in the Philippines.
