A position is available for a postdoctoral associate with specialization in primate field ecology. The successful candidate will be responsible for monitoring the behavior and tracking the movements of mouse lemurs in Southeastern Madagascar. The candidate should have experience in animal tracking, vocal recordings, DNA barcoding, and the collection of biological samples for subsequent genomic analysis.
