We need a freelance writer to help produce content for our research compendium.


The compendium audience consists mostly of people with scientific training, but across a range of disciplines (e.g. vets, public health professionals, microbiologists, virologists, computer modellers). Consequently, we are adopting a quasi-scientific style (can assume some scientific terminology is acceptable, and can include figures, tables, etc.).


Each chapter synthesises the major outcomes of the past 7 years of funding of the Australian Biosecurity CRC in that thematic area. Most chapters are being written in-house, but as this is a major project we are looking for someone to write the following chapters:


- Livestock Disease Diagnostics (estimate 7000 words)

- International Outreach and Postgraduate Program (estimate 5000 words)


All content needs to be finalised by March 2010
