PhD Scholarship Available: Harbour seal behaviour and ecology


The Graduate School on Sense organs, Nerve systems, Behavior, and Communication (SNAK), University of Southern Denmark and the National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark (NERI) invite applications for a PhD scholarship in research on marine mammal behaviour and feeding ecology beginning in February 2007.


The position involves study of the response by harbour seals to controlled disturbances in relation to diurnal and seasonal use of haul out sites and investigation of their foraging strategy. Field work has to be carried out on the island of Anholt in Denmark during the summers of 2007 and 2008. The PhD will mainly be based at NERI in Roskilde. 


Applicants should be recent graduates in the field of vertebrate biology and behavioural ecology and preferably but not necessarily have experience in marine mammal research. The duration of the PhD-contract is three years. Within the contract period, the candidate is expected to complete his/her research with publications and a dissertation. Salary will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations).


Before applying, candidates are strongly encouraged to consult the full project description at http://www.snak.biology.sdu.dk <http://www.snak.biology.sdu.dk/> . For further information please contact Dr. Jonas Teilmann, National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark, e-mail: jte at dmu.dk <mailto:jte at dmu.dk> .


The closing date for applications is December 15th 2006.

You can also send a hard copy application in three duplicates to: Graduate School SNAK, Institute of Biology, Campusvej 55, DK-5230 Odense M, Denmark


The selection of the successful candidate will be made in two steps. In the first step, an evaluation committee will select a group of qualified applicants. The selected applicants will then be invited to apply for the PhD-position at the University of Southern Denmark (for procedures see: http://www.sdu.dk/Nat/fak/phd/index.php?lang=en)
