The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work on a new ARC-funded project exploring how vulnerable Australia’s eucalypts are to future droughts. This project will combine data-synthesis, experimental manipulation and modelling to deliver new process-orientated insight into the response of eucalyptus trees to projected changes in the frequency, magnitude and duration of future droughts across Australia.
The role will involve process-based model development of the Community Atmosphere-Biosphere Land Exchange model (CABLE), Australia’s land surface model. These developments will include the representation of plant hydraulics and testing novel optimality-based hypotheses relating to lead shedding, leaf cooling and rooting depth.
Application deadline: August 10, 2019.
