Position overview

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis at the Research School of Biology at the Australian National University is seeking to appoint two outstanding midcareer researchers in an area of research related to Photosynthesis and plant productivity.

The appointees will have an established record in building internationally competitive, innovative research projects.

The Division of Plant Sciences within the School has an excellent international reputation in areas of photosynthesis, growth and photosynthetic water-use efficiency and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis is a world leading focus for research in strategies for photosynthetic improvement.
