Andy Read and Doug Nowacek of the Marine Conservation Ecology Group at  
Duke University seek a postdoctoral researcher to conduct an analysis  
of the response of short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala  
macrorhynchus) to signals produced by a SIMRAD EK-60 scientific  
echosounder system during a controlled field experiment. The analysis  
will involve several response variables, including vocalization rate  
and three-dimensional patterns of movement, obtained from Digital  
Acoustic Tags (DTags).  In addition, the analysis will examine  
patterns of group cohesion using data collected during focal animal  
follows.  The successful candidate will conduct data analyses, prepare  
reports and submit manuscripts to peer reviewed journals.   
Quantitative analytical skills are required, including relevant  
experience analyzing behavioral and acoustic data.  We expect the  
candidate to engage fully in the intellectual life of our laboratory  
and take advantage of research, mentoring and teaching opportunities  
as they arise.  The Duke University Marine Laboratory located in  
Beaufort, NC is a vibrant research and educational community located  
on the North Carolina coast in Beaufort and is part of the Nicholas  
School of the Environment.  This is a one-year, full-time appointment  
with an annual salary of $45,000, with the possibility of renewal. The  
position carries standard health and benefits of employment from Duke  
University.  Prospective applicants should send a CV, statement of  
interest and the names of three references to Jennifer Dunn (jennifer.dunn at duke.edu 
) by July 31st 2011.
