The Research Project

This PhD project supports the ARC Research Hub for Sustainable Onshore Lobster Aquaculture. The overall goal is to 'domesticate' one or more tropical seaweed species not previously grown in on-shore aquaculture, and test their suitability for integrated multi-trophic aquaculture with the rock lobster (Panulirus ornatus).

  • Experience in marine macroalgal (seaweed) nutrient and photosynthetic physiology
  • Experience cultivating seaweeds
  • Experimental design
  • Statistical analysis of data
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
