*Masters of Science, Marine Habitat Mapping of Endangered fish habitats. *

*Newfoundland, Canada.*

Memorial University of Newfoundland's Marine Habitat Mapping Group is 
recruiting for a fully-funded two-year Geography Masters of Science 
(MSc) student to work on mapping habitats of the endangered Atlantic 
Wolffish (/Anarhichas lupus/) in coastal waters of Newfoundland, 
Canada.This project involves characterizing the nearshore habitats of 
the wolffish using multibeam sonar bathymetry, ground-truthing (diver 
observations, underwater videos and grab samples) and acoustic tracking 
of wolffish movement. The project will be conducted in close 
collaboration with scientists from the government of Canada (Fisheries 
and Oceans Canada).

The ideal student will have a background in physical geography, marine 
biology, environmental sciences or related disciplines with good 
academic standing, good communication skills in English and an interest 
in working in an interdisciplinary environment. Knowledge of benthic 
ecology, marine geology, statistics and/or GIS will be an asset. The 
start date for this 2-year Masters of Science is January 2014. Before 
applying formally to the university, candidates should email Drs. Evan 
Edinger (eedinger at mun.ca <mailto:rdeville at mun.ca>) and Rodolphe 
Devillers (rdeville at mun.ca <mailto:rdeville at mun.ca>) before *Oct. 30^th 
2013*, providing a statement of interest, a copy of a resume mentioning
