Master's degree in biology or engineering, or a bachelor's degree and
two years of experience.
Data analysis, field work, report/manuscript preparation and laboratory
Research in the lab is focused on the behavioral ecology and
bioacoustics of several species of marine mammals. Local studies of
bottlenose dolphins are complimented by research with North Atlantic
right whales along the east coast of the U.S. and Canada and with
Florida manatees at different sites around the state. Current projects
in the lab include foraging behavior, bioacoustics, and community
structure of bottlenose dolphins, manatee bioacoustics, auditory
capabilities, and response to vessels, assessment of risk factors
associated with right whales and ship strikes, and the locomotion,
anatomy and diving behavior of right whales.
Ability to plan, organize and coordinate work assignments. Ability to
work independently and to communicate effectively, both verbally and in
writing. Ability to collect, compile, and assist in analyzing
statistical data, e.g. time series analysis, and to prepare reports and

a team. Knowledge of basic computer programs (e.g., word processing,
spreadsheet) is essential, and additional experience with other software
is highly desirable, e.g., MATLAB, ArcView. Position need not
necessarily be filled by a biologist; engineers (e.g., computer,
acoustic) are encouraged to apply. **
