The Centre for Marine Science & Technology at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia, is looking for motivated students to undertake research towards an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in underwater acoustics or marine bioacoustics. We currently have M.Sc. and Ph.D. topics available in the following areas:


·         The physics of anthropogenic noise (noise source characterisation, research into the underlying noise generation mechanisms, development of predictive noise models etc.)

·         Underwater sound propagation

·         Underwater acoustic technology & measurements

·         Underwater soundscapes & ambient noise (source characterisation, temporal & geographic variability, trends etc.)

·         Bioacoustic analysis software development

·         Passive acoustic monitoring of cetaceans, including population density estimation

·         Noise effects on marine animals (mammals, fish, plankton, birds etc.)


Most of our current projects require a strong background in acoustics, physics, engineering or computer science. Depending on topic, students will be supervised by Dr. Alec Duncan, Dr. Christine Erbe, Dr. Alexander Gavrilov, Dr. Rob McCauley or Dr. Chandra Salgado-Kent. 


While students are encouraged to apply for scholarships [http://scholarships.curtin.edu.au/], financial support is available for these projects and can be used towards domestic or international tuition and/or living support. 


Interested applicants please email a CV by 15 November 2011 to either 

Christine Erbe [Christine.Erbe at curtin.edu.au] 

or Rob McCauley [R.McCauley at cmst.curtin.edu.au]
