The Cornell Lab of Ornithology encourages applications to our competitive postdoctoral program that supports innovative, independent research by early career scholars of exceptional promise. Two or more named positions are available annually, with applications due on September 8.
These postdoctoral opportunities support individuals pursuing cutting-edge scholarship, while fostering intellectual interaction with two or more of the Lab’s programs. Any area of inquiry related to the Lab’s mission “to interpret and conserve the earth’s biological diversity through research, education, and citizen science focused on birds” may be appropriate. Potential applicants are encouraged to learn more about our activities and opportunities, including our formal programs in Bioacoustics, Bird Population Studies (avian ecology), Citizen Science, Conservation Science, Communication, Education, Evolutionary Biology, Information Science, Macaulay Library (animal behavior), Multimedia Productions, and Public Engagement in Science.
