Each year I provide an annual auditor’s report of our accounts in accordance with US legislation for not for profit societies. In addition I keep the Board appraised of income and expenditure several times each year, with particular attention to conference funding. As well as income from membership fees and transactions associated with conferences, I also manage payments for various services such as the hosting of this website.
#WCNRM2019 in Montreal!! Thanks to organizers and HEC @HEC_Montreal We wait you in Valparaiso-Chile for the next conference in January 2020 (first time in South America) #WCNRM2020 @ResModelAsso @usantamaria @CMMUChile More information in http://www.am2v.cl/wcnrm2020/
DeLara introduced an interesting new indicator for Management Strategy Evaluation. Expected value of an indicator (e.g. spawning biomass) conditional on the indicator being below the reference point. want it to be above a threshold-Leads to more precaution
#WCNRM2019 @ResModelAsso @MattHHolden gives us rules of thumb when using Demographic Distribution Models to deal with spatial autocorrelation in SDMs – populations must be measured below a minimum size that increases with overcompensatory behaviour. Most promising for use with invasives

- Postdoctoral level (or academic level 2/B) quantitative ecologist position to work with the Global Wetlands Project at Griffith Uni for 2.5 years. This is an amazing opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary team to tackle major issues in the conservation of coastal wetlands, including seagrass saltmarsh and mangroves, their dependent ecosystems and ecosystem services. https://www.seek.com.au/job/39254431?searchrequesttoken=2826ead6-4d5b-45cc-9295-3829f7dfbfb5
Postdoctoral research associate position available at Deakin University, to work on new project on ecosystem risk assessment, funded by the Australian Research Council: “Ecosystem risk assessment: new solutions to the global biodiversity crisis”.
Summary: This project aims to develop a typological framework for the world’s ecosystems, and undertake the first broadscale global risk assessment for ecosystems. It also includes detailed Australian risk assessments and scenario analyses to develop sustainable management of ecosystem services and climate adaptation strategies, with a focus on Alpine ecosystems.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will initiate and conduct research in ecosystem risk assessment, management and conservation. S/he will undertake risk assessments of Australian ecosystems, building on the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems protocol, and undertake scenario analyses to inform the sustainable management of ecosystem services and climate adaptation strategies, with a focus on alpine and sub-alpine ecosystems.
The postdoc will work closely with the team at Deakin (Emily Nicholson, Rebecca Lester & Susanna Venn) and project partner Tracey Regan(DELWP). For more information, and to apply for the position, please visit the position description on the Deakin website.
This is a full-time, 3 year fixed-term position based at the Melbourne Burwood campus and classified at Research Fellow Grade 1 (Level A) with salary in the range of $86,479 p.a + 17% superannuation. Ideal starting date is July/august, but we are flexible for the right candidate.
Team: David Keith (UNSW), Emily Nicholson (Deakin), James Watson (UQ), Nick Murray(UNSW), Rebecca Lester (Deakin), Susanna Venn (Deakin), Richard Kingsford (UNSW), Lucie Bland (Deakin), Jon Paul Rodriguez (IUCN), Tony Auld (NSW OEH), Tracey Regan(DELWP), Hedley Grantham (WCS), Mark Tozer (NSW OEH)
Project partners: IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature), Provita, Wildlife Conservation Society, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, Victoria’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning
The Resource Modeling Association was established over a quarter of a century ago and is unique among scientific societies because it brings together scientists and mathematicians from a diverse range of disciplines with a common interest in studying natural resources from a sustainable-use perspective. The natural resources of our planet are under incredible pressure to supply burgeoning human needs and this will only continue to increase. Challenges are ever-present to ensure that resource use remains sustainable and that vital ecosystem services critical for our well-being, species biodiversity essential for the well-being of the global ecosystem, and ecosystem resilience to perturbation are conserved as far as practicable through responsible action. Such action must be informed and it is here that the integration of the quantitative and biological sciences can play a determining role.
Recently we held our 23rd annual meeting in Montreal, Canada where participants were treated to a superb and diverse range of presentations about the practical application of modeling to real world problems within a convivial collegiate atmosphere of friendly exchange of ideas and opinions. Preparations are now well underway for our next meeting to be held in the coastal city of Valparaiso, Chile during 8-10 January 2020.
I encourage you to consider joining with like-minded people and becoming a member of the RMA to assist you to grow your own professional network and participate in being part of the solution to the global challenge of natural resource management.
