A worker at the Plant Breeding Institute

The great outdoors and the great indoors

When you work, study or collaborate with the School of Life and Environmental Sciences, you will have access to fantastic facilities from state of the art biochemistry and genetics laboratories, to plant breeding and ecology greenhouses, to veterinary hospitals, to field facilities in the Great Barrier Reef, dry sclerophyll forests, mangrove swamps, beaches and intertidal rock platforms, agricultural fields and livestock farms.

The School of Life and Environmental Sciences owns and uses facilities in central Sydney, Camden on the outskirts of Sydney, One Tree Island in the Great Barrier Reef, Crommelin Biological Field Station on the NSW Central Coast, and Narrabri in the grain growing area of northern NSW. The School also uses facilities in major hospitals, medical research institutes and veterinary clinics around Sydney and Australia.
