 Post Doc Opportunity-cetacean population ecology
The Coastal and Marine Research Institute at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa, presents a diverse group of marine researchers. Cetacean research is fast expanding, with a number of postgraduate projects investigating the natural history, population dynamics and health of local populations in Eastern Cape waters.

At present the opportunity exists for a postdoctoral researcher with mark-recapture experience to join the research team to assist in elucidating population structure and connectivity of local delphinid populations. Specifically, an existing dataset is available and current field projects provide room for expansion and incorporation of further research ideas.

Prior experience in the following skills is desired: photo-identification, biopsy sampling, small boat research, stranding attendance and necropsy.
The successful candidate must be a team player, have strong communication skills, be reliable, self motivated, and be able to work independently, leading field research efforts. He or she will be expected to assist in generating funds through grant applications.

The post is available for 12-months, with an opportunity for extension.
Start Date: January 2015.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, CV and contact details of two academic referees by 15. July.
