We are seeking an outstanding, motivated MSc student to investigate
aspects of nutrition and bioenergetics in pinnipeds.

The student will enter the MSc program at the Marine Mammal Research Unit
at the University of British Columbia (in association with the Dept of
Zoology). Their project will investigate the nutritional value of
different prey items in captive Steller sea lions and northern fur seals
(see http://www.marinemammal.org/research/nutstres.php) at the Marine
Mammal Energetics and Nutrition Lab.

The successful applicant will commence in Janaury 2012 and be supervised
by Dr. David Rosen (primary) and Dr. Andrew Trites. Student support is
available for the first year of studies, and we are looking for students
who are likely able to secure independent support for their second year.

Please contact Dave Rosen (rosen at zoology.ubc.ca) with a curriculum vitae,
cover letter and an (unofficial) copy of your undergraduate transcript.
