Positions open at the University of St. Andrews, UK: Killer whales are one of the better-studied cetaceans world-wide, and research on killer whales in the North Atlantic has advanced markedly in recent years. There is considerable interest in the social structure, ranging patterns, foraging ecology, and acoustic behavior of North Atlantic killer whales, and how such patterns might relate to those of killer whales in other populations world-wide. The Miller lab is seeking well-trained, motivated, and independent students to join in their research efforts on killer whales in the North Atlantic. There are a number of potential research projects available depending upon the interest and independent work experience of each applicant.
At the present time, there is no specific funding for studentships under this program. All applicants will be eligible to compete for any funded studentships that may come available within the University of St Andrews, and which are awarded to the best prospective students on the basis of demonstrated merit. Therefore, students who are able to independently arrange their own funding via fellowships from government agencies and NGOs will greatly strengthen their applications.
All applications will be assessed twice annually, with the next upcoming application deadline on 30 January, 2013. The positions will remain open until they are successfully filled. For further details please click the web link below
