Applications are open for PhD Research Projects with the ARC Training Centre for Future Crops Development
The Centre, funded by the Australian Research Council under its Industrial Transformation Training Hubs Program, aims to build future R&D capabilities in the Agrifood sector to drive growth, productivity and competitiveness for the benefit of agriculture and global food security.
Commencing in 2022, the Centre will train PhD students and early-career researchers in new Agri-technologies and in analysing socio-economic opportunities. Students will have opportunities to engage with industry partners and communities on projects to improve the yield and nutritional value of the crops that underpin the energy and protein content of the human diet. Over 20 generous full and top-up scholarships for PhD projects are available for both international and domestic students.
