Project description:

The Hussey Lab in Biological Sciences, University of Windsor is seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow to join its research program in 2019. The PDF research will broadly focus on understanding the movement ecology of commercially important and endangered species across the Canadian Arctic and at several tropical study sites under the framework of climate change. Research themes include; fisheries management issues at both community and commercial scales, the relevance of marine protected areas for species/ecosystem conservation and management and advancing a mechanistic understanding of the “cost of life”. Specifically, the lab is looking for candidates who have extensive experience with biotelemetry (satellite/acoustic and preferably archival biologgers), are able to deal with large high-resolution data sets, have a strong quantitative and theoretical background and wish to be involved in projects with challenging fieldwork components. The position will involve extensive travel to remote areas nationally and internationally. The successful candidate will be able to operate independently and as part of broader multi-disciplinary research teams, communicate with diverse stakeholders and be willing to share their expertise and enthusiasm among laboratory group members. Interested applicants should contact Nigel Hussey (nehussey@uwindsor.ca) and include a cover letter identifying their research/academic/fieldwork experience to date, research interests, a full curriculum vitae, and names of two referees. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
