Functional traits of grass weeds – investigating the processes that determine weediness (WeedTraits) A 36-month post-doctoral position is available on a project funded by the Science Foundation Ireland to investigate the functional traits and strategies underlying the ‘weediness’ of agricultural grass weeds. Functional strategies allowing the weed wild oat (Avena fatua) to combine high fecundity with competitive growth will be identified under laboratory and field conditions. Photosynthetic function of different inflorescence organs will be investigated by combining gas exchange analysis, gene expression analysis and source-sink manipulations. Using state-of-the-art phenotyping, competition experiments with barley varieties representing a range of
