The Research School of Biology is recruiting up to six Academic Level B/C positions across the three divisions of the school.  We are also advertising a teaching intensive position.
This December, the ANU Research School of Biology celebrates its 50th anniversary. Founded in 1967, the School comprises of four divisions, spanning Ecology and Evolution, Biomedical Science and Biochemistry, Plant Sciences, and the Biology Teaching and Learning Centre.
Congratulations to all 91 students who presented at the 2017 RSB student conference – the inaugural event in the newly renovated Robertson building 46. The short-format talks once again provided a highly engaging showcase of the diverse and high calibre research being undertaken within RSB.
A new study involving ANU and international collaborators has found plants release more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere through respiration than expected, and the problem will worsen with climate change.
