Sciences & Engineering
This scholarship is to support research in the physiology of photosynthetic nitrogen distribution in relation to light within wheat canopies. It is funded by a grant from the GRDC, under the auspices of the International Wheat Yield Partnership. The incumbent will perform laboratory and field research to characterise photosynthetic capacity and light profiles across diverse genotypes of wheat in the field, and to study mechanisms limiting the flexibility of capacity profiles using laboratory experiments
