Innovating the growth of table grapes in tropical environments


Table grapes are the most valuable fruit crop worldwide and have emerged as a model scientific crop for studying climate change effects on growth and sustainable production. Presently, growth in tropical and subtropical climates is incredibly challenging; understanding how to improve production is the key to unlocking a multi-million dollar industry in northern Australia. In this project, you will use advanced physiology and biochemical approaches to understand the phenology of tropical-grown grapevine by manipulating growth with physical and chemical interventions. You will extend your knowledge in plant biology and work towards high-level publications in international journals. You will have opportunities to travel and interact with industry leaders in western and northern Australia as you contribute to a larger program of work studying this problem. Two scholarship positions are available. To apply, please complete the expression of interest form here, directing your application to the lab of A/Prof Michael Considine; https: //
