PhD in post-fire wildlife use of tree hollows

Opportunity Type: 
Student Opportunity
Closing Date: 
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

This project will investigate wildlife presence, use of tree hollows and nest boxes and breeding success post-fire. Providing supplementary habitat is widely used but poorly understood; several studies report that nest boxes have not benefitted priority species. 

This research will be co-supervised by Dr John Martin at Taronga Conservation Society Australia.

Candidates will have to apply for a PhD scholarship, ideally commencing around July 2020.
