PhD projects: Conservation ecology of threatened wallabies

(The University of Newcastle)


The projects aim to understand the impacts of the 2019/20 ‘black summer’ bushfires on these species. Over 70% of the distribution of parma wallabies burnt, and a substantial proportion of the red-legged pademelon’s distribution also burnt. Understanding the population dynamics, habitat use, survivorship, movement patterns, corridor use, diet, and stress of these species in recently burnt and long unburnt areas will be key to identify optimal management options. Details on applying for scholarships are found at https://www.newcastle.edu.au/research-and-innovation/graduate-research/future-students/scholarships#ucgs Expressions of interest should include a cover letter explaining your honours research, experience with field ecology; a copy of your academic record; and a curriculum vitae (cv). If you have any questions about your EOI, please contact Matt Hayward matthew.hayward@newcastle.edu.au        Contact: Associate Professor Matt Hayward          Ph.: +61 2 4921 7472

PostDoc Opportunity

Scale-dependent interactions between carnivores and their prey

The proposed post-doctoral fellow will focus on the interactions between these carnivores and forms part of a larger research project, specifically focusing on the effects of scale on the interactions between cheetah and lion, and the impacts of the carnivores on prey
species. Substantial data on space use and prey use by cheetah and lion are available. You can find more information here
