Susan R. McCouch (born 1953) is an American geneticist specializing in the genetics of rice. She is the Barbara McClintock Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University, and since 2018 a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
McCouch completed her doctorate at Cornell in 1990, under the supervision of Steven D. Tanksley. Her research has included identifying the genetic mechanisms used by rice to survive long-term flooding, and the development of a new cultivar of red rice.
