PhD opportunity in Indigenous-led management of Sea Country

Posted: November 16th, 2022

Charles Darwin University’s Northern Institute is looking for a PhD researcher to work on the Indigenous-led management of Sea Country in projects across the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia.

The aim is to support the building of relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous marine and fisheries managers to address critical knowledge gaps and improve the visibility, equity and outcomes of Sea Country management.

Candidates should have existing expertise and experience in partnering with Indigenous communities in conservation planning, land and sea management, protected area governance, fisheries management, MPA (marine protected area) management, anthropology or policy.

Applications close 16 December but candidates are asked to email to discuss their research interests by 24 November. Indigenous applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
