The South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) is a leading research and development institute delivering innovation to enhance the food, fibre and bioscience industries and living environmental systems in South Australia.  Located at the Aquatic Science Centre, West Beach (South Australia), The Threatened, Endangered and Protected Species (TEPS) Sub-program delivers high quality research on the foraging and population ecology of protected marine species and their trophic and operational interactions with fisheries and aquaculture to support Government conservation and management objectives, including ecological sustainable development.  The Sub-program has key capabilities in the ecology of marine mammals, seabirds, sharks, ecosystem trophodynamics, ecosystem based fisheries management, the ecological effects of fishing, protected species interactions with fisheries (operational and trophic), and protected species conservation and management.

The Senior Research Scientist (Marine Mammal/Spatial Ecologist) will conduct high quality research, and provide assistance in undertaking and managing research projects within the TEPS Sub-Program. The Senior Research Scientist is responsible for coordinating fieldwork and undertaking analyses, report and manuscript preparation for projects principally funded by Government and Industry. These projects have some overlap, but broadly they aim to: 1) monitor the status and trends in abundance of seal populations (Australian sea lion, New Zealand and Australian fur seals), 2) deploy and recover satellite and biologging instruments on marine predators, and 3) integrate and analyse spatial data on the critical habitats and foraging ecology of a range of marine predators. The Senior Research Scientist will help explore funding opportunities and develop new projects, manage project budgets, provide support and co-supervise post-graduate students working with the Sub-program.

Duties: The Senior Research Scientist will conduct high quality research, and provide assistance in undertaking and managing research projects within TEPS (Threatened, Endangered and Protected Species) Sub-Program. The Senior Research Scientist is responsible for coordinating fieldwork and undertaking analyses', report and manuscript preparation for projects principally funded by the Australian Marine Mammal Centre (AMMC), the SA Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Fisheries Research and Development Cooperation (PRDC) the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) and the oil and gas exploration industry.

Essential Qualifications: The applicant must have a relevant PhD in Science with research experience in marine mammal ecology and spatial modelling.

Special Conditions: This contract is for a period of 3 years with a possible extension subject to satisfactory performance and availability of funds.
