The Neural & Cognitive Plasticity laboratory at the University at Buffalo, 
SUNY, in Western New York, is looking for motivated students to undertake 
research towards an M.S. degree in Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior
( in one of the 
following areas:

·         Song learning and adaptation by humpback whales
·         Auditory distance estimation by cetaceans and songbirds
·         Auditory scene analysis and source localization within song choruses
·         Auditory perceptual learning in underwater echolocation
·         Development of biomimetic sound production and reception technologies
·         Real-time acoustic monitoring and analysis of cetacean vocal behavior

Most of these projects require a strong interdisciplinary background in 
acoustics, psychology, engineering or computer science. Students will be 
supervised by Dr. Eduardo Mercado, along with other faculty in the UB Program in
Evolution, Ecology and Behavior (see

Interested applicants should email Dr. Mercado  before 
applying to the program. The program is designed to train researchers, 
educators, managers and regulators in the study of evolution, ecology and
behavior. The subject matter of the program is broad-ranging and encompasses 
those aspects of the life and environmental sciences that characterize how 
organisms interact with each other and their environment and how those
interactions change over time.  Students will be required to complete 
coursework from multiple departments, including Anthropology, Biological 
Sciences, and Psychology, and may also take course in other departments such as
Neuroscience and Electrical Engineering to fulfill degree requirements.
