We host a diverse and vibrant postgraduate community that is expanding rapidly. The research in the department tackles relevant conservation issues through fundamental and applied research and often involves engagement with practitioners. Our local and international students and postdocs are exposed to a multi-disciplinary environment and get opportunities to develop a variety of research skills, supervise postgraduate students and teach. The university also provides a range of academic support tools and workshops.

Prospective students and postdoctoral fellows are advised to contact potential supervisors directly. Please see information on the staff and current research projects and application process
