Student opportunities

The School of Earth Sciences, part of the Faculty of Science at The University of Queensland, includes the traditional disciplines of hard and soft rock Geology, as well as Palaeontology. The School provides unique opportunities for study or research in vertebrate palaeontology and palaeoecology, with national and international programs in marsupial evolution, megafaunal palaeobiology and palaeoecology, and Quaternary geochronology.

Several opportunities currently exist for students interested in volunteering and studying in research programs (Honours and PhD) within the Vertebrate Palaeoecology Research Group within the School.
