Graham Farquhar awarded an Einstein Professorship
27 February 2013

Graham Farquar (Division of Plant Science) has been awarded an Einstein Professorship by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS).

The Professorships are awarded annually to 20 distinguished international scientists actively working at the frontiers of science and technology.

Graham was recognised for leading research across a broad range of fields and scales, from integration of photosynthesis with nitrogen and water use of plants, stomatal physiology, isotopic composition of plants, and global change.

The program aims to strengthen the links between CAS scientists and Einstein Professors, and to enhance the training of future generations of scientists in China. It provides funding for recipients to conduct lecture tours in China, as well as for young CAS researchers to visit the recipients in their home laboratories.
