We have opportunities available for Honours and PhD students interested in tackling novel research questions around biodiversity conservation and ecosystem service management. Students interested in working within our group should have an interest in quantitative approaches to tackling conservation problems and be passionate about having an impact on conservation planning and policy. Students interested in undertaking a PhD will need to obtain a scholarship prior to starting theor PhD (options for scholarships through The Unversity of Queensland can be found at http://www.uq.edu.au/grad-school/scholarships-and-fees and details about applying through the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management can be found at https://www.gpem.uq.edu.au/rhds).
There are a wide range of opportunities to undertake research under each of our four research themes at Honours and PhD level. However some specific PhD projects currently available include:
- The value of learning about socio-ecological systems
- Understanding the role of interactions between climate and land-use change for conservation planning
- New approaches to dealing with risk in biodiversity conservation under climate change
- Landscape fragmentation, ecosystem services and planning
- Public perceptions of urban bushland regeneration
