PhD Studentship on Acoustic Monitoring of Cetaceans at Sea Mammal Resear

Subject: PhD Studentship on Acoustic Monitoring of Cetaceans at Sea Mammal Research Unit
From: Jonathan Gordon <>
Date: Thu, 09 Jan 2003 11:41:42 -0800
The Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU), University of St Andrews, will be
 recruiting a PhD student as part of a substantial inter-disciplinary
 collaborative project with the Scottish Association for Marine Science,
 Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory, investigating and modelling marine mammal
 distributions off the West Coast of Scotland.   This student will have
 particular responsibility for collecting and analysing data about cetacean
 distribution and abundance , which will mainly be collected from platforms
 of opportunity, often using passive acoustic techniques.  The resulting PhD
 will be an investigation of optimum ways of using such data for monitoring
 cetacean populations and will be supervised by Dr Phil Hammond and Dr
 Jonathan Gordon.
 The fieldwork associated with this project will involve spending
 considerable time working from ships offshore and being responsible for
 operating a suite of acoustic monitoring equipment.  Experience of working
 at sea for considerable periods, an aptitude for maintaining electronic
 equipment and for computing are desirable, as is self reliance and an
 ability to operate independently while contributing to the work of a large
 team.  Further details are available on the SMRU Website

 Interview dates have not yet been finalised but we wish to commence
 fieldwork in March and if necessary would start the student working as a
 research assistant until the full studentship becomes available.   Potential
 candidates are invited to apply by email by sending a letter of application
 and cv to Dr Jonathan Gordon  ([EMAIL PROTECTED]).
