Dr Jay(akumar) Bose is a Senior Lecturer and an outstanding Mid-Career Researcher within the School of Science. He recently received the highly prestigious Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellowship and was a former ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Awardee (DECRA). Bose’s pioneering work has advanced our understanding of how water and nutrient transport mechanisms govern plant adaptive responses to salt stress.

Bose’s contributions to plant science are reflected in numerous publications in esteemed journals, with over 5800 citations and an h-index of 32. Bose’s exceptional research excellence, collaboration, public outreach, and leadership achievements have garnered recognition, including the prestigious 2017 South Australian Young Tall Poppy Award from the Australian Institute of Policy and Science.
