Position: Senior Ecologist
Location: Redland City, South-east Queensland
We are looking to employ a full time Senior Ecologist with high level ecological skills to complement our team. To be considered for this position you must have a MSc or PhD in ecology or a closely related field, or undergraduate qualifications with at least seven years of consulting experience.
It is imperative that you have strong field skills in zoology and/or botany, with well-developed technical writing abilities. Zoologists will need to be able to survey all vertebrate fauna groups, and have an ability to assess habitat for its value to fauna, especially conservation significant fauna. Botanists will need strong plant identification skills that can be applied across a range of bioregions. Familiarity with the field assessment and survey techniques that are applied to accurately describe and map regional ecosystems and measure habitat condition will be well-regarded. All applicants will be expected to have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
BAAM works predominantly in Queensland, therefore applicants with field skills based in other regions will need to demonstrate an ability to quickly transfer their skills.
Although not essential as mentoring will be provided, applied experience with the workings of Queensland environmental legislation would be an advantage.
Flexible working arrangements (part-time, occasional work from home, study leave, etc.) will be considered.
