ANU is a large, diverse employer with staff working across numerous professions (see the full list of available roles here.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and identities and from individuals who may have had a non-linear career path, career gaps or career breaks.

This research project will conduct the first comprehensive analysis to evaluate and improve predictions of C4 photosynthesis in regional and global scale models, synthesizing data to advance our basic understanding of C4 ecology and our ability to improve numerical C4 function in models. To accomplish this, the broader project team will use two complementary activities: 1) Synthesize existing C4 physiological data, including measurements under ambient and manipulated environmental conditions to evaluate current C4 conceptual and numerical models; and 2) compare current representation of C4 processes in numerical models with those updated by our refined ecophysiological logic.

In order to achieve these goals we are looking for a researcher with experience in plant sciences or similar area. We are looking for someone who likes challenging problems and encourages team members and colleagues to workshop effective solutions.

We are looking for a strong team player with excellent interpersonal skills and the capacity to quickly develop productive, professional relationships with colleagues and clients. Highly developed organisational skills and effective self-management are key.
