Conservation Careers Podcast

Jul 23, 2018

This week in the Conservation Careers Podcast Nick talks to Professor Bill Sutherland - Miriam Rothschild Chair of Conservation Biology, Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

Bill is proposing a 'revolution in conservation practice', and we talk today about his drive to develop a sound evidence base for conservation. Doing more of what is proven to work, and less of what isn’t.

Bill also shares his thoughts on the ways to progress an academic career, along with practical advice on how to apply for PhDs (and jobs), and which mistakes to avoid.
