Please see below details for TWO Photo-ID research assistant positions at the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU), University of St Andrews, Scotland.

Application closing date: 2nd May 2019

The project is funded by the Scottish Government as part of a Marine Mammal Scientific Support grant to SMRU to investigate the decline of harbour seal numbers in areas of Scotland. One of the project's objectives is to gain a better understanding of harbour seal population dynamics in different areas. The project, led by Prof Ailsa Hall at SMRU, aims to address this data gap by collecting sighting and pupping history data of harbour seals at different study sites using photo-identification methods. Mark-recapture models will then be fitted to these data in order to estimate birth and survival rates. The appointed research assistants will play a key role in the project and will be responsible for processing photo-identification data collected at the study sites (Isle of Skye, Kintyre Peninsula, and Orkney) in 2019, and contribute to generating the associated databases and photo-ID catalogues.
