WANTED: new PhD students

Students from USA, Canada and Europe: did you know that scholarships for both full tuition and living expenses (stipend) are available for suitably qualified applicants? A typical PhD is completed in Australia in 3 to 3.5 years. With the soil ecology group based at the largest agricultural research institute in the southern hemisphere, the opportunities for world class PhD experience in soil ecology, in a desirable location, are available.

A number of projects are available covering various aspects of soil ecology. Our research uses cutting edge techniques in real world settings. We use genomic, biological and physicochemical techniques in the laboratory, glasshouse and on-farm, in an effort to make a fundamental contribution to scientific knowledge, while achieving real world impact. Details of specific projects are available upon request.

We are also currently looking for new PhD students from all over the world to join the group. If you are interested in doing so, please also read our opportunities page.
