The Environment Institute has won two of Federal Govenment’s Super Science Fellowships. The aim of these fellowships is to attract and retain outstanding early-career researchers. The fellowships have been awarded to this institute to examine environmental DNA barcoding and genomics, develop methods for rapid visual analysis of ecosystem change and improved climate change modelling approaches.
Lead by the Australian Centre for Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity in collaboration with the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA and the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies the fellowships will examine environmental DNA barcoding and genomics in order to develop methods for rapid visual analysis of ecosystem change and imporved climate change modelling approaches.
“The fellows will develop advanced predictions of ecosystem changes based on novel genetic and image analysis methods,” says Professor Andy Lowe, Director of the Australian Centre for Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity and Chair of Plant Conservation Biology in the University’s Environment Institute.
Congratulation to Andy Lowe, Corey Bradshaw, Anton J van den Hengel, Barry W Brook and Alan Cooper for their successful application.
