Postdoctoral Research Associate in Sensory Ecology

A postdoctoral research position is available in the Barber lab to
investigate the impacts of anthropogenic noise on bird and bat
distribution, movement and behavior.  This field project will involve
the experimental application of noise at large scales coupled with
finer scaled behavioral investigations.  We aim to empirically isolate
noise as a variable associated with anthropogenic disturbance and
quantify its effects on animals that rely upon sound to communicate
and forage.  We seek a broadly trained ecologist, ideally with
experience in bioacoustics and/or quantitative wildlife ecology with a
demonstrated publication record.  The postdoc will lead a team that
includes a graduate student, a part-time technician and several
undergraduate research assistants. There is ample opportunity for the
postdoc to shape the direction of the overall research effort.
Empirical fieldwork will take place in the mountains near Boise; other
components will be conducted in one or more National Parks in the

In addition to these research and mentoring efforts there will also be
an option to guest lecture in Sensory Ecology and/or co-teach a
graduate seminar with the PI.

Boise, Idaho offers an outstanding quality of life, juxtaposing a
vibrant urban community with endless outdoor recreation opportunities.
Salary is 40K per year plus benefits.  Funding is available for two
years.  The postdoc and the PI will actively pursue additional funding
for subsequent years.  Applicants should provide a cover letter
detailing their interest in the position, a CV, up to three
publications and contact information for three references.  Please
send all materials to 

The position is opened until filled.  Review of applications will
begin Nov. 1, 2011 with a start date as early as Jan. 15, 2012.
