Aloha.

The Cetacean Research Program within the Protected Species Dvision at NOAAs
Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center is recruiting for a bioacoustician
to join our group. This new position will play a lead role in using passive
acoustics for cetacean assessment within the Pacific Islands Region,
including use of our existing towed array and autonomous datasets, and
development of new projects. The application period is open until October
2nd. And as with most Fed positions- U.S. citizens only.

DUTIES: The successful candidate will be capable of taking on the following
duties, specific to this position:

   - Use existing and collect new datasets for assessment of cetaceans in
   the Pacific Islands Region. This includes working with Program Leader to
   develop the project design, execution of data collection and/or analysis,
   and reporting on findings.
   - Use of existing and development of new routines in ‘MALAB’ and/or ‘R’
   for the purposes of analyzing passive acoustic datasets for cetaceans. This
   may include development or modification of existing routines for detection,
   classification, and localization of cetacean sounds within a variety of
   datatypes, such as towed hydrophone arrays, mobile and stationary
   autonomous recorders, and other sensor platforms.
   - Conducting multi-variate statistical analyses for the purposes of
   understanding the relationship between cetacean occurrence and/or behavior
   and environmental or anthropogenic factors.
   - Use of cetacean detection, classification, and localization hardware
   and software for real-time applications.
   - Application of underwater acoustic signal processing tools for proper
   analysis of acoustic datasets sampled at a variety of sample rates,
   duty-cycles, and with various sensor configurations.
   - Application of existing and development of new approaches for
   incorporating passive acoustic detection, classification, and localization
   datasets into cetacean abundance estimation.
   - Drafting and reviewing scientific reports and papers for peer-reviewed
   journals.
   - Participate in periods of up to 2 months per year to direct data
   collection at sea, including leading, as needed an acoustic team or other
   project teams.
