The successful appointee’s primary role will be to manage and conduct the field work component of an Australian Research Council Linkage Project. This will involve live trapping of native mammals and vegetation surveys in South-east Queensland. Some laboratory and computer based work will also be required.
Applicants should possess a degree (or equivalent) in ecology, conservation biology, environmental management or similar discipline, or relevant work experience/training. You must also have demonstrated experience in conducting live trapping, handling and tissue sampling of native mammals and flora surveys. Knowledge of the flora and fauna or South-east Queensland, or ability to rapidly acquire this knowledge is also essential. Computer skills and strong communication skills are also highly desirable.
