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.
