Ph.D. Student Position: Marine Science Institute (ISMER), University of Quebec in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada


We invite applications for a PhD student starting in summer or fall 2014, who will undertake a project examining the foraging ecology and energetics of baleen whales in relation to prey densities. Candidates should have an interest in comparative physiology and biomechanics of marine organisms, and a strong background in mathematics, physics, statistics and computer science. This project is undertaken collaboratively with Dr. Jeremy Goldbogen at the Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University, CA (lab webpage: http://goldbogen.stanford.edu). However, the student must pursue the PhD program at the University of Quebec in Rimouski (http://www.uqar.ca/) under the supervision o Dr. Gesche Winkler (http://www.ismer.ca/Winkler-Gesche) and myself, and be based in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada for the duration of the program. Knowledge of French is an asset, but not essential for the position.


Candidates interested in the position should email veronique.lesage at dfo-mpo.gc.ca and submit a C.V. including a list of publications and contact information for three references.
