ARC Discovery funded job

The key objective in the ARC funded project ‘Systematic planning beyond
conservation’ is to develop an approach to conservation and restoration
planning that directly links remediation of anthropogenic disturbances to
benefits for aquatic biota. The final goal of the project is to develop
algorithms for optimal allocation of protection and remediation dollars,
based on water-dependent biota in the Daly River catchment, NT. Our group
(especially Mark Kennard and Virgilio Hermoso) has a very good local
knowledge of biota and threats in the area, so the candidate should be able
to hit the ground running. Candidates will also benefit from our existing
ties with the Northern NERP and the UQ decision science group. Through our
partner investigator Dr Josie Carwardine, we also have a direct link to
CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences. Good mathematical/statistical background is
essential, with some experience in programming.

Depending on the experience, the candidate would be appointed at postdoc
(Level A) or research fellow (Level B) levels.
