Doctoral Position in Bat Echolocation
at University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

PhD Scholarship Available: Bat echolocation, sound intensity and directionality
The Graduate School on Sense organs, Nerve systems, Behavior, and Communication 
(SNAK), University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a PhD 
scholarship in research on bat echo-location with focus on intensity and 
directionality of echolocation signals. The scholarship is financed by FIST 
(Forsknings -og Innovationsstyrelsen, the Danish Agency for Science Technology 
and Innovation) and commences by June 2007.

The position involves studying the intensity and directionality of sounds emitted by bats from different families and with different morphology, habitat and feeding behavior. The candidate will mainly be based at Institute of Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, but the stipend includes a one-year research stay in another bat-lab. The project includes laboratory experiments and field work, which is planned to be carried out partly in Denmark and partly in the tropics.
Applicants should be recent graduates in the field of vertebrate behavioral 
biology or neuroethology and preferably but not necessarily have experience in 
bat biology or animal bioacoustics research. The duration of the PhD contract 
is three years. Within the contract period, the candidate is expected to 
complete his/her research with publications and a dissertation. Salary will be 
in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC
