Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior
University of Minnesota - Twin Cities 

A postdoctoral position is available to investigate acoustic communication
in a lower vertebrate model. Our research uses behavioral and
neurophysiological methods to study the auditory systems and communication
systems of treefrogs (http://umn.edu/home/mbee). The position involves the
use of behavioral experiments to examine the mechanisms of sound source
segregation in noisy social environments and it will also provide excellent
opportunities to develop and implement methods for further investigating the
neural mechanisms of hearing in these organisms. The position also provides
an opportunity to interact with a large community of behavioral biologists,
ecologists, evolutionary biologists, auditory neurophysiologists,
audiologists, and hearing psychologists. 

The successful applicant will have a PhD in animal behavior, psychology,
neuroscience, or a related discipline. A background in animal acoustic
communication, neuroethology, psychoacoustics, electrophysiology or auditory
neurophysiology is preferred, and the candidate should have demonstrated
competence in conducting experiments in one or more of these disciplines.
Desirable applicants will also have the ability to perform digital signal
processing using Matlab and/or other programming languages. Salary will be
commensurate with experience.  

Interested applicants must apply online at http://employment.umn.edu. Search
for requisition number 160547. Applications should include (1) a cover
letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) a statement of research interests
and experience (attach as Additional Document 1). PDF attachments of
published or in press papers are encouraged but not required.  In addition
to applying online, please have two letters of recommendation sent via email
(preferable as PDF files) to Dr. Mark Bee at mbee@xxxxxxxx Review of
applications will begin after June 1, 2009, with an anticipated start date
of September 2009.
