Dr. David Rosen is seeking a M.Sc. student to join The Marine Mammal Energetics and Nutrition Lab, part of the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries (IOF) at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada). The student will be working on aspects of pinniped navigation and at-sea movement.  The position ideally starts Spring 2021, although consideration will be given to a Fall 2021 start. The position is open to both Canadian and international applicants, and students will be registered in the IOF graduate program. As per IOF regulations, the two-year degree program has independent financial support which includes some work as a teaching assistant. Additional information about the lab is available at https://mmeanlab.oceans.ubc.ca/ <https://mmeanlab.oceans.ubc.ca/>.


The bulk of the project involves analyzing tag location data, so previous experience in this type of analysis or skills in GIS/spatial analysis would be helpful, but not essential.  Applications should contain a cover letter, CV, unofficial academic transcripts, and contact information for 2-3 academic/personal references (you do not need to send actual letters).  Deadline for applications is noon PST February 15th, 2021 and should be sent to Dr. David Rosen at rosen at zoology.ubc.ca <mailto:rosen at zoology.ubc.ca>.
