The Hub is recruiting for the following roles:
Research fellow (Plant-Soil Microbiomes)
Level A ($75,289-$102,163)
The Research Fellow (Plant-Soil Microbiomes) will play a key role in the Hub Theme 3 (Harnessing plant-soil microbiome interactions for optimising nutrient capture and informing fertiliser design) and collaborate with the other Themes across this multi-disciplinary, industry-university partnership.
Working closely with the Hub Director, Theme 3 Leader and theme 3 Chief Investigators, this role will:
- identify how the plant-soil-microbiome interactions influence the root physiology and signaling molecules for nitrogen acquisition for selected crops under varying abiotic conditions;
- develop a framework for high-throughput isolation of plant beneficial communities and test their efficacy on plant performance under controlled conditions using synthetic community approach;
- evaluate how the interactions of new chemical and biological fertilisers with plant roots and soil microbiomes to benefit the growth of the selected crops.
Applications open until AUS Eastern Daylight Time
