The Bioacoustics Research Program at Cornell University's Lab of 
Ornithology is a diverse group of biologists and engineers focused on 
studying the natural soundscape and animal vocal signals. We currently 
have a post-doctoral position available for development and 
implementation of automatic detection and classification algorithms for 
processing large quantities of animal and environmental acoustic data 
from a variety of different marine and terrestrial habitats. These data 
will form the foundation for many concurrent studies around the world 
focused on the behavior, occurrence, distribution, migration patterns, 
and impacts from anthropogenic activities on a wide range of 
acoustically active species, including songbirds, shorebirds, marine 
mammals, fishes, elephants and other fauna.

To be considered for this position, you must have a PhD in engineering 
or related field, with particular focus in signal processing for 
algorithms related to signal detection and classification; experience 
writing highly complex computer code in MATLAB or other high-level 
languages such as Java or C/C++; demonstrated ability to conduct 
original research, from conception and literature review through 
analysis and publishing; strong communication skills including 
proficiency in written and spoken English; and the ability to work as 
part of a multidisciplinary team of scientists. Experience with 
acoustics and/or marine mammal research is preferred.
