The postdoctoral position is part of the multi-year H2020 INTAROS project (Integrated Arctic Observation System http://www.intaros.eu) which aims at developping an efficient and integrated observing system of the Arctic.
The team works on using passive underwater acoustics to monitor, understand and use polar soundscapes. The postdoctoral fellow will focuse his work more specifically on the Kongsfjorden (Spitzberg) soundscape.
A central objective is to identify the respective signatures of various sound sources (e.g. benthos, sea mammals, wind, waves, ice, boats, etc), and to quantify their contribution to the overall soundscape budget. A particular interest is to monitor noises linked to touristic boat traffic increases, and their potential effect on the environment.
* analysis of acoustic data collected since 2013 in Kongsfjorden as well as data collected at other polar sites
* analysis and processing of auxiliary data (wind, waves, ice cover)
* involvement in the organisation of upcoming fieldwork and upcoming acoustic experiments in polar regions
The project is resolutely interdisciplinary, candidates should be graduated with a PhD in one field linked to the project : acoustics, signal processing or marine biology. Preliminary experience in bioacoustique and/or under-water acoustics is recommended.
IUEM (Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer) gathers one mixed service unit, 6 joint research units, a multidisciplinary Master's degree in Marine and Coastal Science, a doctoral school and an observatory of the sciences of the universe (OSU) of the French National Institute (INSU).
LEMAR is one of the 6 joint research units and is a strongly interdisciplinary laboratory that brings together ecologists, biologists, biogeochemists, chemists, physicists and marine environment lawyers. Its objectives are (1) to conduct research on topics of fundamental research or societal importance; (2) to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development objectives in both North and South countries; (3) to bring innovations in relation to the economic world and results that support public policies; (4) to engage in interdisciplinary training in the field of marine and coastal science.
