Job description

We are currently looking to fill a post-doctoral position in computational acoustics/seismology at the University of Padua, Department of Geosciences. The post-doctoral fellow that we shall hire will work towards the adaptation of SPECFEM (or some alternative code for modeling the propagation of elastic waves in complex media) to problems in bioacoustics. Specifically, we shall study the conduction of waves in biological tissues, with implications for the functioning of biosonar, and in general the nature of the auditory system in toothed whales. This position is part of “SWIM: aSsessing the Impact of offshore Wind turbines on Marine mammals in the Adriatic sea”, a collaborative project funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, in the framework of the NextGenerationEU program.
