Dear Colleagues, (with apologies for cross posting)

*The MSCA Doctoral Network SEASOUNDS* (Innovative marine soundscape 
characterization to effectively mitigate ocean and sea noise pollution, 
GA no. 101119769) *will soon be recruiting 10 highly motivated PhD 
students.*We would appreciate your assistance in advertising within your 
channels of communication and helping us find highly motivated students.

SEASOUNDS aims to *better characterize and predict marine soundscapes, 
in order to provide recommendations for appropriate and proportionate 
underwater noise mitigation solutions*, for improved know-how, 
decision-making and standards setting for a sustainable Blue Growth 
limiting the impact on marine wildlife. The project addresses important 
knowledge gaps related to understanding, characterization and modeling 
of the entire noise transfer chain, from the noise source (e.g. offshore 
foundation installation, UXO disposal, shipping) to the receiver 
(whether a technological tool or an animal). SEASOUNDS’ methodological 
approach incorporates concepts, models, and tools from a variety of 
disciplines including *underwater acoustics, seismology, mechanics, 
bioacoustics, and marine biology**.* Thus, SEASOUNDS will train 10 PhD 
students with high multidisciplinary, inter-sectoral, and transverse 
skills, who will comprehend noise pollution issues in a holistic way.

The Network gathers 15 partners from France, Spain, Italy, The 
Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Monaco and USA (see 
<https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101119769>), and will run for 4 
years from January 2024.

The PhD positions will have staggered _starting dates between 
September-December 2024_ for a duration of 3 or 4 years, depending on 
the host institution’s rule. The 10 individual projects are :

  * *PhD position 1 at TU Delft (The Netherlands) - Environmental
    vibrations and acoustic emissions from offshore foundation installation*
  * *PhD position 2 at CNRS-Géoazur (France) - Imagery of seabed
    sediments and sub-surface properties by Distributed acoustic sensing
    (DAS) measurement*
  * *PhD position 3 at CNRS-LMA (France) - Noise pollution generated by
    historical Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) disposal in shallow waters*
  * *PhD position 4 at NTNU Trondheim (Norway) - Modeling of shipping
    noise in arctic fjords*
  * *PhD position 5 at CNRS-LMA (France) - Uncertainties in the source
    and environment description: influence on noise impact assessment*
  * *PhD position 6 at Università degli studi di Padova (Italy) - Impact
    of anthropogenic activities on underwater noise pollution in the
    Venetian Lagoon*
  * *PhD position 7 at Università degli studi di Padova (Italy) -
    Natural and Anthropogenic Dynamics of Marine Soundscapes*
  * *PhD position 8 at NTNU Trondheim (Norway) - Marine mammal
    monitoring using Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)*
  * *PhD position 9 at Aarhus University (Denmark) - Moving animals in a
    variable soundscape*
  * *PhD position 10 at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya –
    BarcelonaTech (Spain) – Impact of underwater noise pollution on
    marine invertebrates and plants*

Each position includes secondment opportunities.
