Title:

Ornithologist

Advertiser:

Nature Advisory Pty Ltd

Location:

Brisbane

Salary etc:

Casual position

Nature Advisory Pty Ltd is a specialist ecological consultancy advising corporate, government and private clients on terrestrial ecosystem monitoring, management and development impact assessment and bushfire risk assessment.

Nature Advisory is also a leading provider of bird and bat ecological services to the wind energy industry and works throughout Australia’s eastern states. We are seeking qualified ornithologists to join our Queensland team based in Brisbane.

The position is currently casual but with regular field survey and there may be the opportunity for more permanent arrangements as our work in Queensland grows. The position will focus almost exclusively on bird and bat surveys throughout Queensland and nearby northern New South Wates with occasional work further afield. 

For this position, tertiary qualifications and strong bird detection and field identification skills are essential, as is knowledge of birds and their habitat preferences in Queensland.

You’ll need to work independently or with other team members to undertake searches and observations of bird and bat behaviour, populations, movements and habitat preferences as part of wind farm impact assessments and operational monitoring. Knowledge of other fauna groups is not essential but will be viewed favourably. On the job training in bat survey methods will be provided.

The position provides an excellent opportunity to join a diverse and friendly team of ecologists committed to a high standard of technical work and client service.

The selected candidate will have:

  • Solid knowledge of bird identification with demonstrated experience in general and targeted bird surveys;
  • Graduate qualifications in ecology with a specialisation in zoology; and
  • A current driver’s license and 4WD competency will be favourably regarded.
