About the role

We are seeking a researcher with a background in bioacoustic research and interest in ecological research in human-modified tropical landscapes. Experience in tropical bat research is required.

The goal is to use bioacoustic technology, and ecological modelling to describe changes in bat and bird assemblages in relation to livestock- associated environmental filtering, along intensive-extensive production gradients in the Amazon, Cerrado, and Atlantic rainforest biomes. This project will be integrated in an interdisciplinary assessment of the consequences of livestock production under contrasting high- vs low-yield production systems and thus will aid in tailoring livestock producing practices that contribute to the sustainability of food production, the development of One Health strategies, and the conservation of biodiversity-rich tropical ecosystems.

Your main activities will involve implementing and managing academic research activities, including coordinating multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines and desired goals. This will involve designing, overseeing, and conducting bioacoustic analyses, working with a wide range of researchers from different disciplines, stakeholders and project partners.

About you

You will also support team members in their activities, contribute to knowledge exchange activities and prepare manuscripts for submission to peer reviewed journals. You will have a proven capacity to produce excellent research and you will be expected to collaborate on initiatives to further cross-disciplinary research.
