Endeavour Veterinary Ecology is a wildlife consultancy that provides specialised veterinary ecology and population management services. We pride ourselves on innovative and collaborative wildlife solutions, optimal ecological outcomes, and high standards of animal welfare.

We have a unique opportunity for a passionate and capable veterinarian to join our team and work with us to recover, manage and monitor koala populations in northern Australia. You will be responsible for ensuring the health and well-being of program koalas, including conducting comprehensive veterinary examinations of koalas under anaesthesia, collecting samples for diagnostic and research purposes, and treating any sick or injured animals. Performing necropsy examinations to accurately determine the causes of mortality in the population and custom fitting telemetry devices to koalas will also be part of your role.

To be successful with your application, you will have a demonstrated interest in wildlife conservation and fastidious attention to detail. We work in a dynamic, fast-paced environment, so an easy-going nature, flexibility and excellent time management skills are also required.

This is a full-time position which includes weekend work on a shared rota. Although you will be based at our clinic in Coomera, travel within Queensland will occasionally be required. We offer a competitive annual salary, commensurate with experience.
