Two-year funded Postdoc Position: Space weather influences on marine mammal movement.

University of Pretoria are seeking a postdoctoral candidate to investigate whether space weather influences marine mammal movements at sea. Specifically, this study will aim to collate telemetry data from a range of Southern Ocean marine mammal species and use these to investigate correlation between the recorded movement patterns with space weather events.

The position is funded for 24 months through a NRF South African National Antarctic Program Postdoctoral Grant at the University of Pretoria (Pretoria, South Africa) and will work closely with the South African National Space Agency (Hermanus, South Africa). Project start date is negotiable, but aiming to start as soon as possible.
