Rewilding Innovations – PhD Opportunity + Ongoing Top-Up

3 Sep 2020

STOP PRESS: CLOSING DATE NOW EXTENDED TO 20 SEPTEMBER 2020.

The Hidden Vale Project are pleased to announce two exciting PhD project opportunities, supported by annual top-up scholarships of $7,000 for 3 years, plus operating funds.

We are inviting applications to join a collaborative project between UQ and ANU, undertaking cutting-edge research into the restoration of faunal communities and habitat and ecosystem processes in Eastern Australia.

Two new full-time PhD opportunties are offerd as part of the broader long-term Hidden Vale Project, based at the Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre, where researchers have access to 9,000 ha of research-focussed nature refuge and grazing land, enviable resources and where students are nurtured to be future leaders in the field.

One project focuses on the ecology of rufous bettong (Aepyprymnus rufescens) to inform species recovery activities. The other will focus on innovations in wildlife reintroductions and recovery.
