Postdoc in bird song
A 3-year postdoc is available at QMUL to work with me (Rob
Lachlan), David Clayton, and Dan Stowell. The project examines how
birds perceive differences in songs using operant techniques; machine
learning; and cultural evolution. Intrigued? Please
write to me and/or see the links below for more information.
Research Assistant position is available at Queen Mary University of
London (QMUL) as part of a project funded by the BBSRC. The project ‘Machine
learning for bird song learning’ seeks to develop and apply new methods for assessing the similarity between complex bird song syllables, guided
by the perception of birds themselves.
research position will play two key roles in the project. First, you
will lead the effort to use operant conditioning techniques to examine
how birds judge the similarity of song syllables. This
will involve using existing operant conditioning techniques to examine
how zebra finches assess song syllable similarity. It will also involve
the development of new methods (in collaboration with Dr Robert Lachlan)
to carry out operant conditioning with free-living
wild birds. Second, you will collate data-sets of song variation from
free living populations, and (again in collaboration with Dr Lachlan)
carry out comparative analyses using cultural evolutionary simulations
fitted to data, and based on song comparisons
using our new methods in order to compare processes of song learning
between species. The project will therefore allow you to develop skills
in two cutting edge areas of behavioural biology.
The project will
require that you travel to collaborate with project partners in the
Netherlands (Wageningen) and the UK (Cornwall).
The ideal candidate
for this position should have a PhD in animal behaviour and
communication. Experience in working with both captive and wild birds,
in operant conditioning methods, and with evolutionary theory
would be desirable. A track record of peer-reviewed publications is
This is a full-time,
fixed term post available for a period of 3 years. The start date is
01/06/2018. The salary is in the range of £32,956 - £38,709 per annum
inclusive of London allowance. The salary will be dependent on qualifications, skills and experience.
Candidates must be
able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance
