Postdoc opportunity in Marine Mammal Behaviour

A 2 year Post-Doctoral Research Associate position will likely become
available very soon at the University of California, Santa Cruz as a part of
a study with PIs Dan Costa, Michael Wise, & Marm Kilpatrick. The study is
at the interface between marine mammal behavior, demography, and
environmental variability. Although extensive research has demonstrated
impacts of acoustic disturbance on marine mammal behavior, translating these
effects into population level impacts has not yet been possible. We seek a
post-doc to analyze demographic data from long term datasets, integrate
several datasets on behavior and environmental conditions, participate in
planning experimental field manipulations, and prepare manuscripts for
publication. The ideal candidate has a strong statistical and modeling
background and some familiarity with the literature on marine mammals,
foraging behavior, and demography.
Please send a cover letter with a short description of research interests,
a CV, and contact information for at least 3 references to Marm Kilpatrick, Review of applicants will continue until position is
