    More information on the project:

    Job Description Summary:
    We are searching for a highly motivated, independent, multidisciplinary postdoctoral researcher to be part of a team
    focusing on understanding the biomechanics of birdsong.

    The postdoctoral researcher will play a substantive role in planning and conducting research by using quantitative
    modelling methods. In close collaboration with the Principal Investigator, the postdoctoral researcher will
    • Participate to the collection of experimental data (multiple X-ray and light high-speed videos,
      Particle Image Velocimetry data, acoustic data, etc.) of different species of birds during vocalization.
    • Fluid dynamics analysis (CFD model) of bird vocalization.
    • Aero-acoustic modelling of birdsong based on experimental data collected by the team.
    • Draft and publish scientific papers derived from the data.
    • Attend annual scientific meetings to present research derived from the project research.
    • Actively participate to meetings, seminars, and CRI life in general.

    Minimum Qualifications:
    PhD qualification with relevant research experience in biomechanics (e.g. engineering, modelling) or a closely related field.

    Additional positive qualifications:
    Specific expertise in one or more of the targeted experimental techniques (PIV, XROMM, and acoustic recordings),
    experience with live animals, and knowledge of the functional morphology of vertebrates are considered as additional positive elements for the candidate.
    An interdisciplinary background is highly appreciated.

    Typical Hiring Range:
    Full-Time job ±2200 Euro/month (net) according to the INSERM salary scale.

    Centre de Recherche Interdisciplinaire, 8bis Rue Charles V, 75004 Paris France.
