I would like to request that the following be posted on MARMAM.

Post-Doctoral Positions in Marine Animal Bioacoustics
Multiple postdoctoral positions are available at the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal
Program. APPLICATION TO THESE POSITIONS IS ONLY OPEN TO U.S. CITIZENS.
Position 1: A post-doctoral position is available to study the hearing
abilities of and effects of sound on marine animals. Projects include
developing acoustic impact criteria and safe exposure guidelines for marine
animals, conducting behavioral and electrophysiological studies of hearing,
investigating behavioral responses of marine mammals to sound, and
determining the physiological effect of noise on the marine mammal auditory
system (e.g. temporary threshold shifts). The applicant should possess a
Ph.D. in acoustics, engineering, physics, or experimental psychology
(specializing in psycho-acoustics) or biology with a strong background in
mathematics.
Position 2: A post-doctoral position is available in environmental studies
with a focus on the impact of sound on marine mammals. Projects include
analyses of abundance and distribution data, development of acoustic impact
models (individual and population level), evaluation and development of
acoustic impact criteria, and evaluation and preparation of environmental
impact assessments. The applicant should possess a Ph.D. in biology.
Applicants with a strong background in modeling, population and abundance
studies, and acoustics will be given preference.
