Dear Bioacoustics Listserve members,

We are pleased to announce NRC Fellowship opportunities for postdoctoral scholars in the marine mammal group at NOAA's Southeast Fisheries Science Center.   Opportunities are available to conduct research in the four research areas described in the ad below.  Please click here to visit the NRC  Research Opportunity page for more information, and contact me by email if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

The Marine Mammal Program at the NMFS Southeast Fisheries Science Center conducts long-term assessments of marine mammal populations throughout the Gulf of Mexico, southeastern US waters of the North Atlantic, and the Caribbean for conservation and management under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act. The SEFSC passive acoustics team collects vessel-based and long-term moored platform passive acoustic recordings to assess marine mammal distribution, density, and abundance trends, and to understand the role of natural and anthropogenic processes driving those trends. This research includes monitoring of man-made and natural sound to assess ocean noise impacts on marine mammals. We are additionally involved in restoration projects to mitigate the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil spill on marine mammals in the Gulf of Mexico.  Research opportunities exist to 1) develop and implement advanced passive acoustic density estimation methodologies, including time-series trend analyses; 2) measure noise levels and characterize occurrence of anthropogenic noise sources and model impacts on marine mammals; 3) model the ecological features and processes driving marine mammal densities using moored passive acoustic data; and 4) conduct spatially-explicit risk assessments of noise sources (e.g. shipping, seismic surveys) using spatial data such as AIS data and marine mammal density models.
