PhD Scholarship in Plant Ecophysiology

Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship in the Department of Plant
Science, University of Tasmania to support research into aspects of the
ecophysiology of Tasmanian native plants.  The successful applicant will
join an active research group and have direct access to modern equipment
for the study of photosynthesis, gas exchange, stress physiology and
microenvironmental control of plant survival and growth.  Funds are
available to support a combination of field-based work and
glasshouse/laboratory-based research.  The main interest of the research
group is on the physiological control of ecological processes in Tasmanian
native plants and environmental control of the growth and survival of
different species.  Funds are available to support research on several
possible projects including the influence of photosynthetic physiology on
succession processes in cool-temperate rainforest.

The successful applicant will have a good first class honours degree in
Plant Science or a related discipline and have some knowledge of plant
ecophysiology.  Experience with the measurement of leaf gas exchange or
chlorophyll fluorescence would be advantageous.  The successful applicant
should be able to start the project during the first half of 1998.

The scholarship will be available for three years with a possible
extension of six months and conditions for the award will be based on the
current Australian Postgraduate Award (APA).  The stipend for 1998 will be
$15 888 p.a. tax free.  A relocation allowance is payable if the
successful applicant is currently living somewhere other than in Hobart.
