Dear colleagues,

As part of the Marie S. Curie Doctoral network SEASOUNDS, we are looking for strong candidates for the PhD position ‘Moving animals in a variable soundscape’. The overall aim of SEASOUNDS is to link the physical characterization of marine soundscapes with impact on marine organisms. The particular PhD project at Aarhus University deals with linking noise exposure experienced by individual marine mammals, quantified by on-animal recorders (D-Tags), to the noise levels modelled by hindcasting soundscape models. The overarching question is: "Do the modelled soundscape maps reflect the actual noise the animals are exposed to?".

The call is now open on Aarhus University's website. You can find the announcement here.<https://phd.tech.au.dk/for-applicants/apply-here/saeropslag/seasounds-moving-animals-in-a-variable-soundscape> The deadline of application is Thursday 29 February 2024 at 23.59. Applications received after this deadline will not be considered. The PhD project is scheduled to start 1. November 2024.

Note that EU eligibility requirements in Marie Curie Doctoral Networks apply and will be enforced strictly:

  *   Candidates already in possession of a doctoral degree at the date of the recruitment will not be considered eligible.

Recruited researchers can be of any nationality but must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before their recruitment date (i.e. the period 1. November 2021 - 31. October 2024).

Looking forward to receive applilcations
