Opportunity for Post-Doctoral Fellow or "Super-tech/Analyst" to conduct 
research on vessel threat to whales.

I am seeking a Post-doctoral Fellow, or "Super-tech/Analyst" to begin As 
Soon As Possible on research related to vessel-strike risk and threat to 
large whales throughout Atlantic Canada with an initial focus on the Gulf 
of St. Lawrence. Applicants 'MUST' have demonstrated and documented 
proficiency in MatLab and/or 'R'. Applicants who also have demonstrated 
and documented proficiency in spatial probability analyses will have a 
clear advantage. Whale-biology knowledge is not reqired. The appointment 
would extend until 30 March 2013 with an annual stipend in the 35 to 40 K 
range with possible top-up. Extension beyond the above period would be 
funding dependent. Applicants should forward a letter of interest and CV 
directly to: chris.taggart at dal.ca
