The Research Associate in Palaeo-Ecological Vegetation Modelling will investigate and quantify the impacts of climate- and human-driven landscape change on megafauna extinctions in Australia. The project aims to integrate explicitly the interactions between vegetation dynamics (grazing, climate change) and the effects of fire (natural or human-driven) on environmental change to investigate how first human occurrence, fire frequency, grazing, and climate change interplay until they drive species extinction events.
