Since 1997 the National Wine Grape Industry Centre (NWGIC), an alliance of Charles Sturt University (CSU), NSW Department of Primary Industry (DPI) and the NSW Wine Industry Association (NSW WIA), has brought together experts in Wine Science and Viticulture within fully equipped facilities on the CSU Wagga Wagga campus.

The research capability of the NWGIC is unique in that we provide a continuum of research from the vine to wine, to sensory profile and consumer perception. The main research priorities are linked to:

  1. Grapevine physiology
  2. Ecophysiology of berry ripening and fruit composition
  3. Vine disease management
  4. Wine chemistry
  5. Process engineering
  6. Sensory and consumer sciences

CSU, DPI and the NSW WIA have entered into collaboration with the University of Adelaide as part of the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre (ITTC) for Innovative Wine Production.

The successful candidate will conduct research as part of the ARC Training Centre for Innovative Wine Production. The candidate will participate in a research project related to grape berry development with an emphasis on vascular transport mechanisms. The primary role will be to examine the anatomical, metabolic and transcriptomic factors that drive water, nutrient and sugar accumulation by the grape berry.

Applicants are expected to apply online and address the selection criteria listed in the position description.
