PhD Position examining effects of ocean noise on fish and invertebrates

We are seeking a student to begin a PhD in the Juanes lab ( at the University of Victoria (UVic) and in collaboration with Corey Morris (Fisheries and Oceans Canada, St. John’s, NL).  The student will be part of the Canadian Healthy Ocean Network (CHONe), a large network of faculty and students across Canada addressing issues in marine conservation and biodiversity, and developing strategies for managing sustainable ocean use (, Our specific project is focused on the effects of anthropogenic noise in the ocean soundscape on fish and invertebrates. Methods will include acoustic analysis of soundscape data, field and laboratory experiments.

Candidates should have completed a Masters degree in biology, physics, oceanography or related discipline and have a solid academic standing, excellent communication skills and a strong quantitative background. Knowledge of underwater acoustics and facility with analyzing large datasets will be an asset. Start date is September 2017. The student will enroll in the PhD program in the Biology Department ( or the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences ( at the University of Victoria, Canada.  A significant portion of the research will be conducted from the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Centre (NAFC), St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.

While at UVic the student will also be able to collaborate with a large group of scientists focused on the relationships between marine organisms and ship noise as part of a MEOPAR funded project ( and with scientists at Ocean Networks Canada ( who operate 2 world-leading ocean observatories in British Columbia.

The position is fully funded for 3 years by CHONe. Additional sources of funding are available thru the University of Victoria. The Juanes lab comprises a large active group of postdocs, technicians and students interested in various aspects of fisheries ecology and conservation. If you are interested in joining the lab please send a cover letter, statement of research goals and interests (max 2 pages), CV, unofficial transcripts, and the names and contacts of three references to Dr. Francis Juanes at by August 1, 2017.
