  1. The K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics (KLY-CCB, formerly the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program) has a 15-year history of teaching sound analysis and providing research mentorship in bioacoustics. We recently received endowed financial support that allows us to expand and deepen our educational and workshop offerings. As part of this process, we are hiring bioacoustics instructors to play a leadership role in expanding our mission-critical education and outreach initiatives. These will be PhD level positions (or Masters with extensive relevant experience) and are envisioned as a parallel track to faculty positions at teaching institutions (the positions are 75% teaching and 25% research). We are recruiting for instructors with expertise in both terrestrial and marine bioacoustics. The primary instructional audience is graduate students and conservation practitioners (globally, with virtual and in-person offerings), so the student population is generally highly motivated with substantial opportunities for ongoing mentorship and collaboration, as well as international travel and global networking. The position is based in Ithaca, NY, USA, but applicants do not need to be US citizens. These positions are not tenure-track, but are intended as long-term career positions with substantial responsibility and full membership in the intellectual research community, and commensurate compensation. The full position description and application is available here: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19268. Please feel free to share with others who may be interested. Application review is ongoing now. Please address any questions about the positions to Dr. Laurel Symes, Assistant Director of KLY-CCB (symes@cornell.edu).
  2. The next introductory Sound Analysis Workshop offered by the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program (BRP) will take place 23 – 27 September 2019, at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, in Ithaca, NY, USA. The workshop is intended primarily for biologists interested in analysis, visualization, and measurement of animal sounds. We cover basic principles of spectrographic analysis and measurement of animal sounds, as well as specific tools and techniques in Raven Pro, a sound analysis application program developed by BRP. More information about the workshop, including fees and registration information is available here. Prospective participants from selected countries are eligible to apply for two scholarship positions in the September workshop. Further details about the scholarship program, including eligible countries and how to apply are available here. Scholarship applications must be submitted online no later than 24 June.
  3. The Bioacoustics Research Program (BRP) at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology will be presenting an introductory Sound Analysis Workshop 27 April – 3 May 2019 at the Cornell Lab in Ithaca, New York, USA. The workshop is intended primarily for biologists interested in analysis, visualization, and measurement of animal sounds. We cover the basic principles of spectrographic analysis and measurement of animal sounds, as well as specific tools and techniques in Raven Pro, a sound analysis application program developed by BRP. The workshop will also include a brief introduction to techniques for targeted field recording using directional microphones. Further information about the workshop is available here.
