PhD Top-up Scholarships – Rewilding innovations and rufous bettong ecology. University of QLD or ANU.

UQ Closing: September 20

ANU Closing: October 2

Two new full-time PhD opportunities are being made available within the Hidden Vale Project. One will focus specifically on rufous bettong (Aepyprymnus rufescens) ecology such as predator interactions, habitat use and carrying capacity and/or ecosystem impacts to inform species recovery activities. The second will focus on innovations in wildlife reintroductions and recovery including addressing threats such as introduced predators through the development of ‘safe havens’ in connected landscapes.

Successful candidates will be invited to apply for stipend scholarships at either The University of Queensland or The Australian National University. Both projects will be well supported as part of a larger team undertaking cutting-edge research into the restoration of faunal communities, habitat and ecosystem processes in Eastern Australia.

Interested individuals are invited to submit an expression of interest stating their interests and ideas in this area of research, transcript(s) and their CV, by 18 September 2020 for UQ applicants and 2 October 2020 for ANU applicants.
