The Fenner School of Environment & Society at The Australian National University (ANU) in collaboration with the CSIRO Future Science Platform Environomics (FSPE) of a funded PhD project. The candidate will document plant-pollinator networks, pollen transfer networks and conducted pollen limitation and pollinator dependency experiments in Australian field sites.
In addition to applying traditional field methods in pollination ecology the candidate will apply metabarcoding methods to the development of pollen transfer network. The candidate will be supervised by Dr Joanne Bennett (ANU), Prof Saul Cunningham (ANU) and Dr Francisco Encinas-Viso (CSIRO).
Any interested candidates are invited to discuss the project with Dr Joanne Bennett via email ([email protected]). For details see PhD Project – Linking plant-pollinator network structure to plant reproductive function in Australia.
