Postdoctoral Position in Birdsong Physiology - Indiana University

Dear all,

Below is an announcement of an available postdoc position at Indiana
University in Bloomington that I post on behalf of Professor Rod Suthers:

Postdoctoral Position in Birdsong Physiology - Indiana University

A postdoctoral fellowship is available at Indiana University for a qualified
applicant interested in the production of complex, learned vocalizations,
using birdsong as a model system. We are studying the mechanisms of avian
song production, including physiological and behavioral experiments on the
role of auditory and somatosensory feedback in the motor control of the
syrinx (vocal organ) and suprasyringeal vocal tract
(http://www.indiana.edu/~songbird/ ). Excellent research facilities are
available including cineradiography and expertise in recording respiratory,
syringeal and upper vocal tract dynamics from freely behaving, spontaneously
singing birds. 

Indiana University has excellent interdisciplinary programs for the
Integrative Study of Animal Behavior and for Neuroscience, as well as
outstanding faculty in speech, hearing and linguistics. Bloomington is
located in the scenic wooded hills of southern Indiana in close proximity to
several state parks and forests. The University provides many cultural
activities including an internationally recognized School of Music. The
postdoctoral appointment will remain open until a well-qualified candidate
is found. If you are interested, please send your Curriculum Vitae,
including a brief statement of your research interests, to Rod Suthers at
suthers@xxxxxxxxxxx Voice: 812-855-8353; Fax: 812-855-4436. Please also
include the names, phone numbers and email addresses of three people who are
willing to provide letters of recommendation if requested to do so. Indiana
University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
