Postdoctoral position: Conservation Planning for Northern Australia under Climate Change. International Applicants Welcome

We are seeking an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in analytical and numerical ecology, to work as a part of an interdisciplinary team on the design and application of novel quantitative and/or qualitative approaches to incorporate climate research into systematic marine conservation planning and fisheries management. The successful applicant will be involved in basic and applied research supporting the conservation management of northern Australia marine ecosystems including spatial analyses for biodiversity representation, as well as consideration with overlapping human uses and ecosystem resilience to climate change impacts.  The research will directly address the theoretical underpinning and analytical practices for spatial design of marine reserves and off-reserve spatial management under various climate change predictions.

Applicants will require a solid foundation in quantitative ecology, good statistical skills and an ability to conduct applied research on environmental valuation, tool integration and multidisciplinary approaches. Candidates must show a clear understanding of systematic conservation planning approaches, the interactions and complexities of ecological and human systems and how conservation management will adapt to climate change.

This position is full-time, however, we will welcome applications from persons wanting to work part-time or to job share.
