We’re delighted to welcome Dr Emily Nicholson to QAECO. Emily has just been announced as the 2012 Centenary Research Fellow for The University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Science. Her research encompasses biodiversity, ecology, conservation and decision making. Emily will be working on theory for assessing the threat status of ecosystems. On her blog, you can read about her account of the recent IPBES meeting that she attended.
Emily completed her undergraduate degree here, before doing her PhD on decision-making for multiple species management with Hugh Possingham. She did a post-doc at Princeton, and is currently completing a Marie Curie Fellow at Imperial College, London in EJ Milner-Gulland’s group.
The University of Melbourne has a few open calls for research fellow positions each year. The Centenary Fellow is awarded annually, and recent PhD graduates are eligible for a McKenzie Fellowship. We would warmly welcome applications for these fellowships from strong candidates – please get in touch with us if you are interested.
