Salary: $69,148 - $93,830 p.a plus 9.5% superannuation
*This is a fixed-term position available for 28 months, not 5 months as previously indicated. Please see the updated Position Description attached below.
This Research Fellow position will contribute to an ARC Discovery project entitled 'Species coexistence in the real world: novel field tests of complex theory', which is a collaboration between researchers from The University of Melbourne, Deakin University and the University of Arizona. The project’s aim is to test ecological theories of species coexistence using the aquatic insects that inhabit streams. These aims will be achieved by carrying out a series of laboratory and/or field experiments designed largely around manipulating densities of egg masses but will also involve the sampling of other life-cycle stages.
You will play a leading role in helping design and carry out field-based surveys and experiments, analysing the data, and writing research papers, in collaboration with the team of investigators.
This position is located within The University of Melbourne’s School of Geography, under the supervision of Prof Barbara Downes, but the Research Fellow will also work directly with the other investigators on this project. Applicants seeking part-time working arrangements will be considered.
Close date: 4 Oct 2017
