Ph.D. position: climate change effects on larval fish behavior

Position description: One Ph.D. scholarship leading to a Doctoral degree in Marine Biology at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences of The University of Adelaide, Australia is currently available to international candidates. I am looking for an outstanding student interested in studying the interactive effects of ocean acidification and sea surface temperature rise on the physiology, behavior, and sensory ecology of larval fish. The project has a strong experimental component and is mainly laboratory-based. The project is in collaboration with other experts in the field providing a broad mentoring experience to the successful candidate.

Qualifications: Applications are only considered from international candidates outside of Australia and New Zealand. Applicants should have a M.Sc. degree or at least the equivalent of an Australian First Class Honors degree, in a field of research relevant to this project. At least one scientific publication as a lead author in a reputable peer-reviewed journal (with ISI impact factor) is required. Applicants should be native English speakers or show evidence of English language proficiency (eg TOEFFL, IELTS). A candidate is sought who is a team-player, ambitious, conceptually strong, has excellent writing skills, can work independently, and is available to start before Sept. 2012. Experience with behavioral experimental work and / or larval fish is highly recommended.

Stipend: The scholarship will be for a three-year period, with the possibility of a six month extension. The stipend is approximately $ 23,728 per annum, and the yearly international tuition fees will be waived. The stipend is likely to be tax exempt, subject to Taxation Office approval. The position is funded by the University of Adelaide and is equivalent to an international postgraduate scholarship
( http://www.adelaide.edu.au/ graduatecentre / scholarships / postgrad / internatio nal / asi.html ).

The University of Adelaide is a research-intensive university, and one of Australia's top eight Universities. The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences HAS strong expertise across the Disciplines of marine ecology and global change biology ( http://www.marinebiology. adelaide.edu.au / and http://www.adelaide.edu.au/ environment / mbp / ).
