We would like to invite applications for the competitively funded* 3 year PhD ‘Do marine mammals react to shipping noise? Assessing the exposure and behavioural response of grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) to shipping noise’ at Plymouth University, UK.
We are seeking a highly numerate candidate to carry out 3D oceanographic and propagation models of shipping noise, and using archived datasets from grey seals tagged in UK waters to calculate exposure levels and assess behavioural changes in diving activity of seals in relation to shipping noise.
Full details of the PhD and how to apply can be found at the link below:
DEADLINE: 15th September 2015
