Green Cities: Urban greening for a sustainable future
We are looking for a highly motivated and qualified PhD candidate for the Green Cities – Which Plant Where Project.
The Which Plant Where Project (WPW) is a five-year program that brings together a consortium of researchers, government agencies, industry partners and nursery growers to facilitate resilient urban green spaces across Australia.
The collaborative team will align science with industry experience to develop tools and resources that will facilitate optimal plant selection for urban green spaces across Australia, while providing multiple co-benefits for our cities and its inhabitants.
Examples of potential topics may include: plant species tolerance; plant traits; urban green infrastructure; urban ecology; climate change adaptation; ecosystem services; human health; bioclimatic modelling; nature based solutions.
Applications are open to international candidates as well as Australian or New Zealand citizens or permanent residents of Australia.
The student will be based within the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University and depending on the selected project the student will work under the supervision of Professor Michelle Leishman, Professor Lesley Hughes, Dr Linda Beaumont, Dr Rachael Gallagher, Dr Alessandro Ossola
