*Research Analyst (Technician IV)*

The Bioacoustics Research Program (BRP) at Cornell University's Lab of 
Ornithology is looking to fill multiple positions at the Research 
Analyst level. BRP integrates across the fields of animal behavior, 
ecology, software engineering and electrical engineering in order to 
understand how animals produce, perceive, and use sound within their 
natural environment. BRP collects and analyzes acoustic data from oceans 
around the world to understand the spatial and temporal occurrence of 
marine animal species (primarily cetaceans) based on the acoustic 
detections of their sounds. Research Analysts perform acoustic analysis 
of sound recordings, which involves organizing and managing large sets 
of acoustic data, and analyzing these data using specialized acoustical 
software. Research Analysts will also collaborate with other biologists 
as well as signal processing engineers to develop and expand BRP's 
software tools, and generate figures and materials related to ambient 
sound analysis and its impact on marine mammals and other species. 
Opportunities will exist for participating in the generation of 
technical reports and peer-reviewed publications, occasionally training 
undergraduate students, and participating in BRP's Sound Analysis 
Workshop, which trains researchers from around the world in sound analysis.

Applicants must have a Bachelor's Degree, and a degree in biology is 
preferred. For detailed information on the required and preferred 
qualifications, and the application procedure, please see the Cornell HR 
website (http://hr.cornell.edu/jobs/positions.html), and search for 
position 12734.  For any questions about the position, please contact 
Aaron Rice (arice at cornell.edu).
