PhD in post-fire wildlife use of tree hollows, University of Sydney

Closing date:  30 June 2021
Location: The University of Sydney

This project will investigate wildlife presence, use of tree hollows and nest boxes and breeding success post-fire. Providing supplementary habitat is widely used but poorly understood; several studies report that nest boxes have not benefitted priority species.

This research will be co-supervised by Dr John Martin at Taronga Conservation Society Australia.

Candidates will have to apply for a PhD scholarship, ideally commencing around July 2020.
