What are your main work duties?
I am involved in field and laboratory work concerning benthic ecology and marine pests species.
What helped you to get your job?
On finishing University I contacted as many employers in marine and terrestrial ecology as I could, pretty much in every state in Australia. Luckily a short-term position came up at MAFRI which developed into my current position, two years later.
