We are offering a fully funded PhD scholarship to work with a team of researchers led by Dr Carly Cook, in conjunction with researchers at The Department of Conservation in New Zealand, Oxford University and the University of Melbourne. This innovative project will investigate the development of decision triggers for management action, to guide when to intervene in the management of threatened species. The successful applicant will need to have research interests in ecology and conservation, ideally blend strong quantitative skills with experience in expert elicitation or running workshops. The student will need to be able to travel to New Zealand to develop case studies.
