Dear all,

We're pleased to announce a Postdoctoral Research opportunity with NOAA's
Southeast Fisheries Science Center to develop density estimation methods
for cetaceans using long-term moored passive acoustic recordings.

The Marine Mammal Program at the Southeast Fisheries Science Center
conducts long-term assessments of marine mammal populations throughout the
Gulf of Mexico, southeastern US waters of the North Atlantic, and the
Caribbean for conservation and management under the Marine Mammal
Protection Act and Endangered Species Act. The SEFSC passive acoustics team
collects vessel-based and long-term moored platform passive acoustic
recordings to assess marine mammal distribution, density, and abundance
trends, and to understand the role of natural and anthropogenic processes
driving those trends. This postdoctoral position is part of a larger
collaborative passive acoustic project to characterize seasonal, annual,
and decadal trends in marine mammal species in the Gulf of Mexico, assess
the role of ocean conditions and human activities in driving these trends,
and monitor and mitigate impacts of anthropogenic noise on marine mammals
in the Gulf of Mexico.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual with an interest in marine
mammal density estimation for protected species management, who possesses
strong quantitative skills in population assessment using passive acoustic
data. This position is located in Miami, FL.

Job title: Postdoctoral Associate
Posting duration: Through November 30, 2020 or until filled
Begin date: January 4, 2021 or as soon as filled
