Robert Cook and Aniruddh Patel (Tufts University Dept. of Psychology= ) are interested in co-supervising a Ph.D. student to study comparative aud= itory cognition in birds and humans (starting fall 2014). The focus is on = cognitive mechanisms relevant to music perception, especially the perceptio= n of melody, rhythm, and timbre. Dr. Cook's lab focuses on perceptual research with pigeons and starlings (v= ocal nonlearners and vocal learners, respectively), and Dr. Patel's lab foc= uses on human music cognition. Some relevant publications are listed below= . Prior research experience in comparative psychology and/or auditory percept= ion is desirable. Interested applicants may send their CV to Drs. Cook (ro= bert.cook@xxxxxxxx<mailto:robert.cook@xxxxxxxx>) and Patel (a.patel@xxxxxxxx= .edu<mailto:a.patel@xxxxxxxx>), but formal applications for the Ph.D. prog= ram must be made via the Tufts Dept. of Psychology. The application deadli= ne is Dec 15, 2013. Admission decisions are made by the graduate admission= s committee. Some relevant publications: Hoeschele, M., Cook, R. G., Guillete, L. M., Hahn , A.
