MSc project on bird’s bioacoustics in Prague: Geographic song variation of male Tawny Pipits (Anthus campestris) in European populations

Dear interested MS students, 

Based at Charles University (Prague, Czech Republic), we are seeking for highly motivated applicants to join our research group for a master’s thesis on the geographic song variation of a migratory passerine bird.

The focus of the project will be to explore the intraspecific geographic song variation of the Tawny Pipit (Anthus campestris) in Europe. The selected candidate will assess the song differentiation among male individuals from four different populations in the Czech Republic, Italy, and Spain that differ in population density (high VS low) and population isolation (isolated VS continuous). However, we might also consider the possibility of using recordings available in public repositories (e.g., Xeno-Canto) to include individuals from some more distant locations. 

This project is data-based, although the prospective student might have the chance to spend some time recording Tawny Pipits in our field site in the Czech Republic (an active surface coal mine area, the only Czech locality with isolated population of Tawny Pipits). Additionally, it can be discussed further the option of getting some more fieldwork experience by giving a hand in other projects of this group conducted in different field sites around the Czech Republic. Experience using bioacoustics software is welcome but not essential; if needed, the student can be trained in the use of specialized software for bioacoustics studies such as the widely used Avisoft and Raven and the up-and-coming Luscinia

Please contact the head of the lab (Tereza Petrusková) if you wish to apply or want to find out more about it:
