of Kryptolebias marmoratus, a mangrove killifish, in the lab of Dr. Yuying Hsu
( at the National Taiwan
Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan. The position is funded for 3 years. The
post-doctoral research associate will participate in projects investigating
whether and how different types of cost related information might be
integrated to influence the fish¡¦s contest decision. Candidates should have a
strong research background in behavioral ecology, preferably in animal contest
behavior. Because I would also like to explore the physiological mechanisms of
the fish¡¦s contest behavior, a background in fish physiology would be a plus.
The official language in Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese. Research papers, however,
are all written in English and English is widely spoken here. Good English is
therefore essential and an English speaker should be able to get by.
Candidate screening will begin immediately, and continue until the position is
filled. The successful candidate will be able to start as soon as practical
after the position is filled. Send a cover letter, CV, names of three
references and a one-page statement of research interests/experience, incl.
