The Marine Bioacoustics and Marine Conservation Technology Lab (http://superpod.ml.duke.edu/nowacek/) at Duke University seeks a doctoral student to work on one of several ocean acoustics projects from effects of anthropogenic noise on marine life to measuring densities of Antarctic krill. Demonstration of strong quantitative and analytical skills and familiarity with signal processing methods is preferred. Candidates with demonstrated skills in scientific programming in Python, R and/or MATLAB are particularly sought. Occasional work on oceanographic vessels will be required. The student would join the dynamic and diverse Marine Conservation Ecology group (http://superpod.ml.duke.edu/) at the at the Duke University Marine Lab (http://www.nicholas.duke.edu/marinelab), a coastal campus in Beaufort, NC with a distinguished record of research and education in marine science, conservation and governance, and a strong international reputation with research interests spanning diverse taxa and include both human and natural systems. The mission of the Duke Marine Lab is to be at the forefront of understanding marine environmental systems, their conservation, and governance through leadership in research, training, communication, inclusion, and diversity.
