I am writing to ensure that you have seen an interesting and unconventional bioacoustics job posting.
The K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics (formerly the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program) has a 15-year history
of teaching sound analysis and providing research mentorship for bioacoustics. We recently received endowed financial support to deepen and expand our educational offerings. As part of this process, we are
hiring sound analysis instructors to
play a leadership role in expanding our mission-critical education
and outreach initiatives. These will be PhD level positions (or Masters with
extensive relevant experience) and are envisioned as a parallel track to faculty positions at
teaching institutions (the positions are 75% teaching and 25% research). We are recruiting
for both terrestrial and marine instructors
and hope to have representation from each.
The primary instructional audience is
graduate students and conservation practitioners (globally, with virtual and in-person offerings), so the student population is
generally highly motivated with substantial opportunities for ongoing mentorship and collaboration, as well as international travel and global networking. The position is based in Ithaca, NY, but applicants do not need to be
US citizens. These positions are not tenure-track, but are intended as long-term career positions with
substantial responsibility and full membership in the intellectual research community, and commensurate compensation.
The full position description and application is available here: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19268.
Please feel free to share with others who may be interested.
Application review is ongoing now.
I’m happy to answer questions about the positions (.
All the best,
