Position as Research Scientist in Animal Behaviour

We are looking for a behavioural scientist for an investigation
of sexual signalling in birds. The project will focus on the use,
information content and costs of song amplitude. The aim is to bridge
proximate mechanisms and the behavioural ecology of sexual signals by
relating song production to endocrine mechanisms and metabolic costs,
as well as to individual fitness.

The project will combine field and laboratory work. It will be based at
the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, but also will require field
work in the French Alps.

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist with a strong background in
animal behaviour. A PhD and and very good experimental and analytical
skills in bioacoustics are required; a ringing license would be helpful.

The successful candidate will join an independent junior research group
headed by Dr. Henrik Brumm. The Max Planck Institute offers excellent
working conditions and facilities of the highest standards. The working
language of the research group is German and English. The position is
funded for a duration of three years, and is aimed to start as soon as
