The NLC is at the forefront of Native Title work and is progressing numerous applications, agreements and settlement negotiations. An experienced Anthropologist is required to prepare ‘connection reports’ and materials to assist with ongoing Native Title proceedings.

You will possess a Degree in Anthropology or related discipline, and comprehensive post graduate experience in self-directed anthropological research and authorship of high level reports, with extensive field research experience with Aboriginal people.
Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, including the ability to work under pressure within a multi-disciplinary team and assist with consultations with Traditional Owners is required.
