Hi all,
We have funding for a 4 year PhD studentship looking at abundance and distribution of cetaceans in the Irish EEZ.  The successful candidate will join a diverse group of researchers at UCC and help deliver an ambitious aerial survey programme, participating as an observer in dedicated surveys for marine megafauna (cetaceans, seabirds, turtles, sharks) and undertaking a programme of study on the distribution of marine megafauna in Irish waters. Aerial surveys throughout the Irish EEZ will be conducted in summer and winter of 2021 and 2022. The successful student should be willing and able to participate in all surveys. The proposed PhD will focus on the distribution and habitat modelling of cetaceans, identifying biodiversity ‘hotspots’ and marine spatial planning.

Scholarship details: The scholarship is funded by the Department of Environment, Communications and Climate ObSERVE programme and will cover EU fees of €5,900 and a tax-free stipend of €18,500 per annum for a period of four years. UK applicants will be granted EU fee status due to the Common Travel Area with Ireland, but international students would likely be required to make up the fee deficit (currently approx. €10,000 p.a.).
It is anticipated that the successful candidate will start the project as soon as possible after 1st July 2021.
