Postgraduate Opportunities

Master of Ecosystem Management and Conservation

As our ecosystems and land management sectors change, how we study and work with them must change too. Land management agencies and private forestry companies spend as much as 30 percent of their time consulting with the community and other stakeholders. An advanced understanding of how people live with, use and feel about their surrounding ecosystems is increasingly important for all professionals in this field. This course will prepare you for a wide range of ecosystem, forest and landscape management employment pathways by giving you specialist knowledge in the biophysical and social aspects of ecosystem management, working at both local and landscape levels.

Subjects include:

Patterns and Processes of Landscape Fire

Bushfire Planning and Management

Spatial Tools for Ecosystem Management

Postgraduate research

Postgraduate research provides exciting opportunities for research students and supervisors alike. FLARE actively supervise students at various levels including Honours, Masters (coursework and research), Internships and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).  We are interested to support students in any of the five research themes (depending on staff availability) and where possible we link to existing projects.  Many of our research projects link to government or industry and we endeavour to provide research students with exposure to government or industry staff to advance their research and future job opportunities.

We are always interested in taking on research candidates. Please contact us if you are interested in completing a project with our team.
