PhD project: Learning from success and failure in threatened species conservation
We seek to understand the reasons behind success and failure of threatened species management in Australia. This project will examine the regulatory and policy instruments and governance processes that have influenced on-ground recovery of threatened species. The project is part of Theme 6 of the National Environmental Science Programme Threatened Species Research hub. Successful applicants will have a demonstrated capacity and aptitude for conducting research and a general interest in environmental governance. It is also desirable that they possess or seek to obtain skills in social network analysis and expert elicitation.
Applicants must possess a Bachelor’s or equivalent degree with first-class Honours, Master of Science or MPhil with significant research components. Prospective applicants should apply for or be the recipient of an APA (or equivalent) scholarship. **Please note that the next scholarship round at The University of Queensland closes on the 2nd of October 2015, with successful applicants able to commence in the first quarter of 2016**.
