In addition, you will undertake consultancy work for government agencies and commercial entities, develop new research opportunities and prepare funding proposals. Regular and timely publication of high quality scientific reports and papers is expected.

You will be equipped with a PhD in marine ecology or biology and at least two years post-graduate experience in quantitative marine mammal ecology. You will have a demonstrated knowledge and understanding of analysis of sightings, locations and distribution data, habitat use modelling, marine mammal ecology and environmental drivers of and threats to threatened cetacean populations. Also, experience in designing and carrying out field campaigns in remote locations. Your ability to communicate complex matters to both technical and general audiences, will ideally be backed by a strong publication record and history of oral presentations and scientific reporting.
