Dear marmam comunity,

We have a vacancy for one Researcher position<https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/252278/researcher-position-in-marine-ecological-modelling> (postdoc-equivalent) to work on a project focusing on the study of the dynamics of baleen whales and their prey, based on passive and active acoustic mooring data. Background in ecological modeling is required for this position, but familiarity with baleen whale acoustic ecology will be considered a plus.

Duties of the position include: use of long-term passive acoustic data from combined passive-active moorings deployed in Southern California to develop ecological models of cetacean-prey interactions, submission of publications to peer-reviewed journals and presenting of work at national and international meetings, as well as partial teaching duties.

We are looking for a person with a PhD and professionally relevant background in marine biology/oceanography or ecological modeling. Proficiency in ecological model development using long-term time series data and solid expertise in R, MATLAB, Python, or similar programming language are required.

The position is based in the Marine Bioacoustics and Ecology Lab<https://www.ntnu.edu/biology/research/mbel> at the Department of Biology<https://www.ntnu.edu/biology> at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)<https://www.ntnu.edu/>. The expected duration of initial appointment is 15 months.
