We are seeking a scientist to collaborate on a multi-disciplinary study of Antarctic krill behavior in horizontal and vertical flumes. The desired applicant will have strengths in quantitative behavioral analysis, ideally of zooplankton, expertise in krill biology (or biology of related organisms) and a basic understanding of biological and physical oceanography. Experience using and developing individual based modeling approaches, or the demonstrated capacity to learn and apply these techniques is essential. The successful applicant will be required to travel to and work in the Antarctic (NSF Palmer Marine Station); relevant field experience is highly advantageous. Candidates must be available for travel Nov-Dec 2019 and 2020, with 3 years of funding in total.

Minimum Qualifications:
• Ph.D. from an accredited institution with applicable coursework in an appropriate scientific degree required at time of application.
• Ability to work effectively on an interdisciplinary team with scientists, engineers of different disciplines, technicians and students required.
• Ability to travel, perform fieldwork, and participate in oceanographic research cruises is required.
• Ability to work flexible hours when required to conduct fieldwork and research cruises
