Biodiversity Assessment and Management Pty Ltd (BAAM) is one of Queensland’s leading specialist ecological consultancies. Based in Queensland, 30 km south east of the Brisbane CBD, BAAM has delivered over 1500 individual projects since 2003. These projects have been for clients in all sectors including Local, State and Commonwealth governments, mining, gas, infrastructure, industry and urban development.

We are looking to employ a full time Senior or Principal Ecologist with high level ecological skills to complement our team. To be considered for this position you must have an MSc or PhD in ecology or a closely related field, or undergraduate qualifications with at least five years of consulting experience.

It is imperative that you have strong field skills in botany, with well-developed technical writing abilities. Of importance are plant identification skills that can be applied across a range of bioregions. Familiarity with the field assessment and survey techniques that are applied to accurately describe and map regional ecosystems and measure habitat condition will be well-regarded. All applicants will be expected to have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

BAAM works predominantly in Queensland, therefore applicants with field skills based in other regions will need to demonstrate an ability to quickly transfer their skills.

Although not essential as mentoring will be provided, applied experience with the workings of Queensland environmental legislation would be an advantage.

Flexible working arrangements (part-time, occasional work from home, study leave, etc.) will be considered.
