The University of Alaska Fairbanks Gulf Apex Predator-prey project 
(http://seagrant.uaf.edu/map/gap/index.php) is seeking an MSc student to 
work with existing humpback and fin whale population and foraging data. 
There is some flexibility as to the exact project, but will involve 
sighting histories, stable isotope signatures, and prey distribution. 
The student's project will require *no additional fieldwork*, but there 
will likely be opportunities to participate in on-going GAP related 
field projects.

Knowledge of or experience with marine mammal biology, statistics, GIS 
and stable isotope ecology ideal, but not required.

*Support in the form of tuition and a stipend is provided for the first 
year of the program only.* The student, with assistance from faculty 
advisor, will be required to secure any additional funding required 
until project competition.

The student will pursue an MSc in Oceanography or Marine Biology through 
the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. Program specifics are 
described here:

Please submit a letter of interest and a CV to Dr. Bree Witteveen

application deadlines, applications will only be considered until April 
23rd, 2012.
