Ecological Leadership Positions at Cornell University
The Bioacoustics Research Program (BRP) at Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology is seeking exceptional candidates for four leadership positions in technology development to address ecological research. Our lab investigates sounds in nature to understand and conserve animal populations, the natural sounds within different ecosystems, and the possible impacts that noise pollution may have on biodiversity. We want to develop innovative technology to explore a variety of ecosystems, as we study everything from whales in the Arctic, fishes in Florida, to elephants in African rainforests. These critical technology positions will play key roles in driving the scientific focus and expand the capabilities of our organization.
