*Graduate student position in marine mammal trophic ecology.*  The Dauphin
Island Sea Lab seeks an MS-level graduate student in marine mammal trophic
ecology (experience with marine mammal observation, stranding and necropsy
response, and/or photo-identification is preferred but not required).
Students must have a strong interest in hypothesis-based research,
background in chemistry, and experience with statistical methods.
Experience with small boat operation and trailering also preferred.  Work
is both lab and field based, and students must be able to work long hours
conducting detailed work with a microscope and processing tissue samples as
well as in the field during unfavorable weather conditions.  The suitable
candidate must be independent and highly motivated.  Strong public speaking
skills and work with the public are necessary.



Students will apply through the University of South Alabama (USA) for
matriculation in fall 2018, but the most suitable candidate will begin work
in the lab in January 2018. Students must meet the minimum qualifications
for entry to the University of South Alabama graduate school of Arts and
Sciences and the Marine Sciences Department and have relevant coursework in
the topic area of interest.

Qualified candidates should send a brief email of inquiry, including an
updated CV, GRE scores and GPA showing they meet the minimum qualifications
to Dr. Ruth H. Carmichael at rcarmichael at disl.org.
