  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
  Enhancing Australian Agriculture Supply Chain Performance through Data Driven Decision Making
  Assoc Prof B Abbasi, Prof P Chhetri, Assoc Prof V Gekara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture is a key sector in Australia economy. After coal exports, agriculture products have highest share of export in Australia.
  Discovering molecular mechanisms regulating nitrogen demand signalling and nitrogen use efficiency in plants
  Dr N Imin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen (N) is a key determinant of crop productivity. In agriculture, the demand for nitrogen (N) fertilisers to produce food, fibre, and feed from crops and pastures is increasing dramatically.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.

  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus (P) sits at the heart of our DNA and the centre of our food system as a widely used agricultural fertilizer. Increased use of P fertilizers over the past 60 years has supported food production and growing populations, but their use also presents us with a number of inter-related sustainability challenges.
