​Industry's ability to reduce the impacts of vertebrate pest animals such as wild dogs and rabbits is dependent on continual innovation in pest management tools and approaches, which in turn is dependent on the development and retention of research capability. This project sought to develop and retain vertebrate pest research capability by providing support for a postdoctoral fellow to work with one of Australia's leading pest researchers. The postdoctoral fellow gained important skills and experience by participating in a wide range of research projects, undertaking formal training, and receiving expert mentorship. This also strengthened the postdoctoral fellow's ability to create and secure ongoing employment in the field to ensure that this investment in research capability is not lost.
