Dear MARMAM readers,

The Southern Ocean Persistent Pollutants Program (SOPOPP) at Griffith
University's Environmental Futures Research Institute, is currently seeking
a highly motivated PhD student to study the feeding ecology of southern
hemisphere humpback whales. The project will make use of long-term data
sets and new data to be collected during the project, including bulk stable
isotope data, lipid and fatty acid profiles.

This project is part of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS)-endorsed
project which employs southern hemisphere humpback whales as sentinels of
the Antarctic sea-ice ecosystem, in an effort to improve understanding of
biological interactions and the scientific basis for ecosystem management.

The successful applicant will need to secure an Australian Postgraduate
Award Scholarship /Griffith University Postgraduate Scholarship.
Scholarship applications close *3rd October, 2017* for an early 2018
start.  Scholarships are merit based and applicants will need to
