We offer several opportunities to conduct physiological experiments with the aim of determining the effects of abiotic stress on growth, development and yield of rice. Our RIRDC-funded project aims to identify variation, and quantify the production response of rice under controlled environmental conditions.

Location: St Lucia or Gatton

Expected outcomes: an understanding of the effect of abiotic stress on plant growth and development; experimentation and research strategies for glasshouse conditions

Supervisors: Dr Jaquie Mitchell, Professor Shu Fukai
