Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).

The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in the regulation of Earth’s climate through its uptake of heat and carbon. Despite representing only 20% of the ocean surface area, it accounts for more than 50% of ocean carbon uptake and more than 75% of ocean heat uptake (Charrassin et al., 2008; Meredith and Hogg, 2006).
