Join a team working at the frontier of research on participatory fisheries management, positively contributing to the lives of people in coastal communities in the Pacific region.

This unique postdoctoral position provides a well-resourced operating space amongst a team of leading experts allowing for academic growth and collaboration, and an opportunity to be part of an established international network of researchers and practitioners. The role is part of a large Australia aid-funded project in Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, led through UOW’s ANCORS, Australia’s only multidisciplinary university-based centre dedicated to research, education and training on ocean law, maritime security and natural marine resource management.
