Vacancy

Acoustic Data Analyst – SMRU, University of St Andrews (18 month)

Closing Date: 21 August 2022

School of Biology, Sea Mammal Research Unit

Salary: £27,924 – £31,406 per annum

Fixed Term: 18 months

Start: As soon as possible

The post is funded by the Scottish Government as part of a Marine Mammal Scientific Support grant to SMRU to study the interactions between marine mammals and tidal turbines, and by Mentor Môn to develop techniques and investigate marine mammal behaviour in relation to the MORLAIS tidal project (https://www.morlaisenergy.com/). Concerns about the impacts of tidal energy on marine mammals derive primarily from the potential for injury or mortality as a result of direct interactions (collisions) between animals and moving rotors of tidal devices. However, the true risks posed by turbines remain uncertain due to a paucity of information on how marine mammals utilize tidal habitats and how they behave in close proximity to operating tidal turbines.
