The UBC Marine Mammal Research Unit is seeking an outstanding, motivated MSc student to investigate aspects of nutrition, bioenergetics and diving physiology in pinnipeds.
The student will enter the MSc program at the Marine Mammal Research Unit at the University of British Columbia in association with the Dept. of Zoology. Potential projects will investigate nutrition and energetics in captive Steller sea lions and northern fur seals (http://www.marinemammal.org/research/) at the Marine Mammal Energetics and Nutrition Lab, or examine aspects of diving physiology and foraging theory at UBC’s Open Water Research Laboratory (http://www.marinemammal.org/research/steller-sea-lion-research/open-water/).
The successful applicant will commence in September 2015 and be supervised by Dr. David Rosen (primary) and Dr. Andrew Trites. We are interested in students who are able to secure independent support, such as an NSERC award.
Please contact Dave Rosen (rosen at zoology.ubc.ca) with a curriculum vitae, letter of interest, and an (unofficial) copy of your undergraduate transcript.
