Under the Fisheries Act 1995, the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) is responsible for the stewardship, protection and conservation of Victoria’s fisheries resources and for ensuring that the management and use of these resources is effected in an objective, efficient and ecologically sustainable manner.
The VFA is seeking a suitably qualified supplier(s) to undertake scientific assessments of the blacklip and greenlip abalone commercial fisheries, which are important economic contributors to the Victorian community, with the commercial sector exporting approximately $20 million worth of product annually, and supporting a regional work force throughout the State.
An invitation to tender was released on the Tenders Victoria website on 1 September 2018, closing 30 November 2018. Please see attached link for your information:

The Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) in Paris offers a 20-month (renewable) contract to a fishery scientist with strong skills in modelling of fish stocks. This position supports the development of robust assessment methods and harvest strategies for toothfish fisheries in the Southern Ocean. He/she will contribute to fisheries management outcomes under the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) and research projects on the Southern Ocean ecosystem led by the MNHN.
Essential requirements are:
1) the completion of a PhD, Master or engineer degree in relevant discipline, such as fishery science, statistics, population dynamics, resource modelling,
2) competence in the use of databases and statistical software packages such as R,
3) effective oral and written communication of research results and their implications for scientists, industry stakeholders, government and the public, and
4) Candidates must be fluent in French, for more information, see the job description (in french here: www.mnhn.fr/fr/recrutement/emplois-stages).

An exciting opportunity has arisen to undertake a PhD that will contribute towards the conservation of wide-ranging species in one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots.
This PhD is part of a larger project involving staff from the University of Western Australia, Alcoa of Australia, Department of Parks and Wildlife and the Western Australian Museum.
The project, funded by the Australia Research Council, Alcoa World Alumina Australia and Department of Parks and Wildlife, aims to develop methods to better integrate conservation with anthropogenic activities across the whole landscape in a drying climate.
We are seeking a motivated candidate to undertake a PhD that will use data on the spatial distribution of critical resources for Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos to model the best trade-offs between conservation outcomes and a range of anthropogenic land uses. Critically, this will include modelling of how the location of cockatoo drink sites might influence these trade-offs.
While most of the data have already been collected, we would envisage that the candidate would undertake, or assist with, some fieldwork to better understand the cockatoo ecology, the landscapes and land uses modelled. The fieldwork would be conducted in a variety of landscapes in the northern jarrah forest ranging from 35km SE to120km SSE of Perth.
We are looking for a candidate interested in both quantitative and qualitative research design, methodology and analysis, an ability to work both independently and as part of a team and a desire to interact and collaborate with both government departments and private industries.
Most of all we are seeking people with a passion for conserving our unique fauna and an interest in finding novel methods of achieving effective conservation outcomes in multiple-use landscapes.
