PhD in Antarctic research

The Lynch Lab ( at Stony Brook University is currently
accepting Ph.D. students with one (or more) of the following skill sets:

•Strong quantitative skills, mathematical modeling or applied statistics
experience; Experience with R strongly preferred

•GIS and/or remote sensing imagery experience; Experience with ArcGIS
required, experience with ENVI/IDL and/or eCognition a plus

•Extensive field experience studying marine mammals or seabirds; Experience
with vessel-based research and polar climates a plus

A Master’s degree preferred but not required. For projects involving
quantitative or geographic analysis, those with backgrounds in physics,
computer science, mathematics, or statistics encouraged to apply.

Students will have the opportunity to structure their thesis research around
a well-established long-term Antarctic research program called the Antarctic
Site Inventory that uses vessel-based seabird monitoring to understand the
impacts of climate change and other anthropogenic disturbance on Antarctic
ecosystems. Financial support may be available through a combination of
research grants, graduate fellowships, and teaching opportunities.

Application and acceptance occurs through the Ecology & Evolution Department

but applicants interested in the Lynch Lab are encouraged to send their CV
and a cover letter describing research interests to Dr. Heather Lynch at in advance of the departmental deadline.
