Postdoctoral researcher in quantitative spatial marine ecology sought at

The University of Sydney, through the School of Biological Sciences and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR), has secured funding from the NSW Marine Parks Authority to support an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Associate in the area of quantitative and spatial ecology of marine benthic communities, with a specific focus on biodiversity within marine parks now and under climate change scenarios. The research will involve the analysis of imagery and video data collected by Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Baited Underwater Video (BUV) and towed video systems, habitat mapping, oceanography and biodiversity assessment to address broad ecological questions relevant to understanding spatial patterns and variability in coastal habitats..
