A research opportunity is available for an outstanding PhD scholar in the area of agriculture. Through the Cooperative Research Centre Project (CRC-P) the University of Sydney will fund two PhD led projects investigating chickpea production delivering advances in productivity and sustainability to northern Australia. Projects will focus on developing heat tolerant chickpea lines and the identification and development of rhizobial inoculants for northern Australian soils.
A number of full-time postgraduate PhD studentships will be provided by the University of Sydney associated with an ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship recently awarded to Professor Edward C. Holmes. The Project will employ novel genomic analyses of viruses from Australian fauna to resolve major questions in RNA virus ecology and evolution
