Just saw this add on the web and thought a budding bioacoustician might be 
interested. Please do not ask me about the studentships as I know nothing about 
them. Contact details are in the ad.


Research Studentships

Institute of Sound and Vibration Research

Stipend is at normal EPSRC rates (Only fees available for UK and EU students).

Two UK-EU PhD Studentships are available to work on a cross-disciplinary 
project funded by the UK Research Council's Basic Technology Programme to 
understand and then exploit the acoustical measurement and imaging techniques 
used by bats and cetaceans to interact with their environment. The project is a 
collaborative venture between the Universities of Edinburgh, Leeds, Leicester, 
Southampton and Strathclyde and Fortkey Ltd and is co-ordinated by the British 
Geological Survey. The ISVR team is working particularly with colleagues from 
the University of Leeds (Department of Biology) to develop experimental 
facilities to study echolocation and target discrimination in air. Other groups 
will develop similar rigs to study bioacoustic signalling in water and in 
particulates. A considerable degree of team interaction will be necessary and 
it is important that the students can operate effectively in team research and 
in either experimental or theoretical acoustics. The ability to w
ork across traditional subject boundaries is essential.

The project will begin 1 October 2006.
