A young researcher has the chance to be involved in a pioneering project that aims to clean soils of herbicide and pesticide residues using crops. A three-year Australian Research Council (Linkage) scholarship is being offered at Flinders University for a PhD candidate to undertake field and lab-based work on the project known as “the investigation of Australian Crop Species for the Rhizoremediation of residual sulfonylurea herbicide contaminations in agricultural soils”. The successful applicant will be based in the environmental health discipline within Flinders newly established School of the Environment. Students with a good honours degree (first, high 2a) in biotechnology, microbiology or related disciplines should contact Associate Professor Richard Bentham ([email protected], 08 7221 8579 ) or Associate Professor Kathleen Soole ([email protected], 08 8201 2030 ) for further details.
