Postdoctoral Position in Acoustic Communication / Auditory Neuroethology 
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior
University of Minnesota Twin Cities 

A postdoctoral position is available in the University of Minnesota's
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior to investigate hearing and
acoustic communication in a lower vertebrate model. Our NIH-funded research
uses behavioral and neurophysiological methods to study the auditory systems
and communication systems of treefrogs ( The
position involves the use of behavioral experiments to examine the
mechanisms of sound source segregation in noisy social environments and it
will also provide excellent opportunities to develop and implement methods
for further investigating the neural mechanisms of hearing in these
organisms. The position also provides an opportunity to interact with a
large community of behavioral biologists, ecologists, evolutionary
biologists, auditory neurophysiologists, audiologists, and hearing

The successful applicant will have a PhD in animal behavior, psychology,
neuroscience, or a related discipline. A background in animal acoustic
communication, neuroethology, psychoacoustics, electrophysiology or auditory
neurophysiology is preferred, and the candidate should have demonstrated
competence in conducting experiments in one or more of these disciplines.
Desirable applicants will also have the ability to perform digital signal
processing using Matlab and/or other programming languages. Salary will be
commensurate with experience.  

Interested applicants must apply online at Search
for requisition number 160547. Applications should include (1) a cover
letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) a statement of research interests
and experience (attach as Additional Document 1). PDF attachments of
published or in press papers are encouraged but not required.  In addition
to applying online, please have two letters of recommendation sent via email
(preferable as PDF files) to Dr. Mark Bee at  Review of
applications will begin after June 1, 2009, with an anticipated start date
of September 2009.
