*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
