Post Doc Opportunity - Right whale behavior and acoustics

The Bioacoustics Research Group in the Department of Biology at Syracuse 
University in Syracuse, NY (, is seeking a 
postdoctoral researcher to join our group to bring new ideas, approaches and 
analytical methods to the analysis of behavioral data collected from marine 
organisms. The work in the lab is focused on the ecological role of acoustic 
communication and the impacts of noise on communication. This position is 
specifically to support ongoing data collection and analysis of a long-term 
study of behavior of North Atlantic right whale mother-calf pairs off the East 
Coast of the United States.

PhD in Animal Behavior, Biology, Ecology or similar field required. Candidates 
with strong analytical skills preferred. Three or more years experience in 
related animal behavior or bioacoustics research as evidenced by publication in 
peer-reviewed journals preferred.

We are seeking a candidate with a strong background in behavioral ecology and 
an interest in developing new analytical methods related to behavioral data 
and/or long-term acoustic recordings. The successful candidate will be expected 
to contribute to work in three main areas in lab:
1. Aid in collection and 
analyses of behavioral and acoustic data from North Atlantic right whale 
mother-calf pairs.
2. Develop new methods to analyze and visualize data sets. 

3. Contribute to publication of data in peer-reviewed journals.

A complete application package should include a brief description of past 
research accomplishments and future goals, CV, PDFs of two publications, and 
contact information for three professional references.  Please follow this link
