【公募】New York University（NYC）ポスドク研究員(2023/9/5 締切)
A post-doctoral associate (PDA) is sought to work on an NSF/BBSRC-funded study of the evolution of conspicuously colored natal coats in primates (bright fur colors, exhibited by the infants of some primate species).
The PDA will help coordinate photography of infant and adult primates, and will lead experimental work testing behavioral responses of primates to images of infants. This work is likely to involve field trips to Japan and Viet Nam.
The project is in collaboration with Dr Will Allen and Dr Nick Justyn, Swansea University, UK.
The preferred start date is in the window of November 1st 2023 – January 1st 2024, but later start dates are negotiable.
The position is for one year, renewable for up to three years. Starting salary is $62,500 (rising each year if renewed), and comes with benefits such as healthcare.
In compliance with NYC’s Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $62,500 - $62,500.
New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the specific grant funding and the terms of the research grant when extending an offer.
A PhD in zoology, animal biology, biological anthropology, or a related field. Evidence of active outputs, such as peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations, with some success in grant applications also preferred.
The PDA will be required to do overseas fieldwork for extended periods, so some experience of travel and overseas data collection is preferred.
Previous experience of undertaking looking-time experiments or other methods used in comparative psychology and perception research are preferred but not essential.
Applicants should submit a one-page cover letter, a CV, and the names and addresses of 3 referees, via Interfolio.
We will begin reviewing applications on Sept. 5th 2023:
