Dear colleagues

I would like to draw your attention to a very nice job offer from the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) for a scientist dealing with projects on underwater noise. Please find additional information and guidance on how to apply at go to 'current vacancies/ external vacancies/marine biologist underwater noise 52/09.

All the Best

Frank Thomsen

An increasingly important environmental issue is the noise generated during human activities in the marine environment and its potential effects on marine life. Cefas has become very engaged in this field recently. We undertake experimental and desk based research on effects of noise on marine life, provide advice to the UK government on noise-generating activities (e.g. offshore wind farms, seismic surveys) and develop background to policy makers on the issue. Our projects target a wide variety of species with an emphasis on marine mammals and fish off the UK coast. The purpose of this post is to further develop underwater noise research at Cefas as a principal scientist who is responsible for planning projects, data collection and analysis and in particular reporting. There is also the possibility of expansion into other topics such as generic risk assessment and cumulative impact assessment.

You will be expected to further develop analytical methods to determine implications of noise related disturbance, contribute to impact assessments, and publish the results of your research in peer reviewed journals and at scientific conferences. As an experienced scientist with an enthusiasm for research science, you will be encouraged to seek new opportunities for research in the UK and abroad.

You must have a degree or equivalent, and a higher degree is very desirable. You must have relevant postgraduate research experience, ideally in the field of marine bioacoustics / noise impact studies and an enthusiasm for research. You must also have good organisational and oral communication skills and a record of publication in the form of peer reviewed papers or reports. Experience in field research and experimental studies dealing with the effects of underwater noise is a clear asset to any application. Since some of the methods we apply deal with spatial analysis of noise disturbance, GIS experience would be a further asset to the post.
