Does a project focused on the beaches of Australia interest you? Are you interested in developing methodologies for evaluating impact of science outreach activities?
There is a Postdoctoral position (NOW) and PhD scholarship opportunities (for 2013) for projects below. Or join students in the Master of Science Communication program who do a one year dissertation on research of their choice as part of their course of studies. www.communicatingscience.org/coursework/postgraduate-coursework
You would join an active research group at a research-intensive university (www.uwa.edu.au) in Perth, Western Australia. www.westernaustralia.com/au/

DEVELOPING EVALUATION TOOLS FOR SCIENCE ENGAGEMENT
Vibrant science engagement activities are given to diverse audiences across all Australian states and territories by enthusiastic and committed providers. Do these activities represent value for the time, energy and money spent providing them?
EVALUATING IMPACT OF EARTHWATCH'S TEACHWILD PROGRAM
Marine debris poses one of the greatest threats to Australia's unique marine ecosystems.
