Conditions of Employment

Ecology Australia offers a flexible work environment. The casual zoologist positions will involve a large component of fieldwork and may involve some office work (e.g. data entry), depending on the individual requirements of each project. The successful applicants will be expected to spend a significant proportion or in some cases all of the time in the field, so the capacity to work outdoors in remote locations is essential.
