The successful candidate will work with Aboriginal knowledge holders to understand the hydrology of key named waterholes, soaks and springs in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

We are looking for someone with a high quality Honours or Masters thesis. Your discipline background may be hydrology or hydrochemistry, geography, archaeology….if this is your dream PhD apply now!
