The New Zealand Department of Conservation administers a Code of Conduct for minimising acoustic disturbance to marine mammals from seismic survey operations (http://www.doc.govt.nz/conservation/marine-and-coastal/seismic-surveys-code-of-conduct/).

A voluntary Code was first implemented in 2006, was revised in 2012, and subsequently became a mandatory requirement under the EEZ permitted activities regulations. The Department has committed to a full review and amendment of the Code to take into account lessons learned during implementation, international best practice, and best available scientific evidence on the effects of seismic surveying.

We are seeking an experienced candidate to lead the review of the Code, which will be undertaken as a collaborative effort incorporating input from government agencies, scientists, industry, iwi, professional observers, and other stakeholders. The review will require understanding scientific principles ranging from the basic effects of sound on protected species to highly technical information on sound modelling, as well as consideration of the practical aspects of seismic surveying operations and how this affects at-sea implementation of any rules which are developed.

Please apply online: https://careers.doc.govt.nz/jobtools/jncustomsearch.viewFullSingle?in_organid=18174&in_jnCounter=222522246.

Applications must include a cover letter, a CV and evidence of the required capabilities as per the project description.

Applications close at 5pm on Monday, 29 September 2014.
