THRIIVE - Training Hub promoting Regional Industry and Innovation in Virology and Epidemiology: Boosting Australia’s Agriculture and Manufacturing
The scholarship will work in a large research training hub project establishing a collaboration between Charles Sturt University, regional industries, and world leading national and international zoonotic virology research institutes.
Project: Citizen Science: Integrating community groups into basin-scale fish tagging and recovery programs
Partnering with OzFish Unlimited, the student will engage with recreational fishers and First Nations people to better understand how to design and implement basin-wide scientific programs with citizen scientists. The student will establish the framework, through training and collaboration, for citizen scientists to be incorporated into basin-scale programs in a scientifically robust way which supports animal welfare considerations.
After working for several years in the Environmental field, I was keen to get back into research and Charles Sturt University was a great place to do so. Within the Gulbali Institute there are so many interesting and diverse people and projects that inspiration is never far. As a result, my PhD supervisory team was first class - knowledgeable, supportive and included a diverse group of academics and industry leaders. The regional setting of the Institute allowed me to pursue higher education while still living comfortably, something I don’t believe I could have accomplished at a metropolitan university.
