    • Research experience in avian ecology covering the following techniques: bird census and surveys, spatial tracking, population ecology, conservation genetics and agent-based modelling. A publication track record involving any three of these techniques will be an advantage.
    • Relevant work experience in urban ecology or conservation biology will be an advantage
    • Good interpersonal skills to work with other research teams and key stakeholders in the public, private and academic sectors
    • Strong written and oral communication skills to communicate effectively in a variety of scientific and non-scientific forums
