Job Posting: Postdoctoral Researcher in terrestrial bioacoustics
The Bioacoustics Research Group, part of the Department of Biology at Syracuse
University in Syracuse, NY (http://parkslab.syr.edu/), is seeking a
postdoctoral scientist to join our group to bring new ideas, approaches and
analytical methods to the analysis of passive acoustic data collected from
terrestrial ecosystems. The work in the lab is focused on the ecological role
of acoustic communication and the impacts of noise on communication in both
marine and terrestrial environments. We are seeking a candidate with a strong
background in terrestrial bioacoustics and an interest in developing new
analytical methods related to long-term acoustic recordings.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute in two main areas:
1. Acoustic data collection, analysis, and publication of results from a
recently funded study on long-term acoustic monitoring.
2. Development of new methods to analyze and visualize long-term passive
· PhD in Biology, Ecology or similar field with strong analytical skills in
acoustic signal processing and/or statistical analysis.
· Three or more years experience in analysis of acoustic datasets, as evidenced
by publication in peer-reviewed journals.
