Description
We are looking to hire a 1-year, NSF-funded postdoctoral fellow to help with a study of vocal communication of Carolina chickadees and tufted titmice. The goal of the project is to understand the social and physical correlates of vocal complexity in these species. Applicants should have experience handling large data sets and have some background in the study of complex systems. An understanding of social network analysis is a plus. Applicants will be expected, in part, to process fairly large data sets and to write up the analysis for publication. The postdoc position can start as soon as 1 April, although the start time is flexible.

Email your CV along with a letter describing your background and how it relates to this study. Also have 3 letters of recommendation sent directly from the letter writers. Materials and any questions can be directed to jlucas@purdue.edu.
