Please post--thank you:

Cascadia Research Collective (see www.cascadiaresearch.org), a non-profit research organization in Olympia, WA, invites applications for a post-doctoral position starting in the fall of 2013 to join an interdisciplinary research team investigating the behavioral response of cetaceans to anthropogenic sound in Southern California. More information on the project and its objectives can be found here: http://socal-brs.org .

Position is anticipated as a two year position with options for continuation (contingent on funding) and an annual salary anticipated being $50-55,000 plus benefits. We seek candidates with a PhD and a strong background in analyzing complex multivariate, time-series data sets and advanced geospatial analyses such as state-space models. Valuable past experience for the candidate to have would include programming with R and Matlab as well as using multi-sensor archival tags to study animal movement and acoustics.

Position would be based at Cascadia Research in Olympia, Washington but will involve travel for field work and to work with collaborators in other regions. Position would be under the supervision of John Calambokidis but will involve close collaboration with the BRS research team.

Apply by October 15, 2013. Submit a curriculum vitae including a list of publications and contact information for three references to Gretchen Steiger (gsteiger at cascadiaresearch.org ) who can also be contacted for any questions regarding the position.
