Mote Marine Laboratory is accepting applications for a new Postdoctoral 
Research Fellowship to support an independent investigator in the field 
of manatee biology and conservation.The fellowship is expected to begin 
between October 2018 and January 2019 and lastfor two years.

*Manatee Biology and Conservation

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to study wild 
manatees in their natural habitat as well as to do research with captive 
manatees. Projects including both aspects are welcome. Mote’s Manatee 
Research Program has a long history of conducting research on manatees 
in the wild. Situated on Sarasota Bay, Mote’s location is in close 
proximity to abundant manatee habitat during the non-winter months, as 
well as a 1-2 hour drive to several important winter refugia.

The experimentally trained and experienced resident manatees at Mote, 
Hugh and Buffett, offer the unique opportunity to perform not only 
non-invasive measurements under controlled conditions, but also 
behavioral studies on manatee sensory biology, cognition and behavior. 
In this field the successful candidate will work in close cooperation 
with the manatee care staff, which is responsible for the training and 
experimental testing.

The position requires the ability to work as part of a team, as well as 
introducing innovative, independent research ideas. A command of 
statistical analysis is highly desirable. For further information on the 
Manatee Research program and current projects please visit 

The deadline for applications is August 31, 2018 and finalists will be 
announced in October. All qualified applicants will receive 
consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion,
