Suitable candidates will demonstrate a robust mathematical background, familiarity with ecological modelling approaches, and ideally have prior experience in boat operation and cetacean field work.


The successful applicant will need to secure an Australian Postgraduate Award Scholarship /Griffith University Postgraduate Scholarship. Scholarship applications close Monday 29th April, 2019 for a late 2019 start.  Scholarships are merit based and applicants will need to demonstrate that they hold a 1st class honours or equivalent, or have been leading author on at least one peer-reviewed journal article.
