Work with The Thorne Lab
We are looking for a Postdoc with strong programming and statistical modeling skills and experience handling seabirds to join the Thorne Lab to work on an NSF-funded study of North Pacific albatross foraging energetics in relation to wind variability. The Postdoc will lead analyses of albatross movement, behavior and energetic expenditure, and will conduct field studies deploying tags on albatrosses. The anticipated start is in summer of 2019, and the the job will be posted here and on relevant websites and list-serves in Fall 2018.
In addition, a PhD position will be available starting in Fall 2019. Applicants that are interested in the foraging ecology of marine predators, particularly those with field experience and with strong quantitative skills (e.g., experience with R or Matlab, multivariate and spatial analyses), should contact Lesley to discuss research projects and opportunities. Information on the Marine Sciences PhD program and the application process can be found on the SoMAS website.
