PhD Position in Bat Echolocation

Syddansk Universitet (SDU)



The Department of Biology at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a PhD scholarship within the field of bat echolocation. The position is available from 1 July 2020 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: 2 June 2020.

Bats are versatile and agile fliers that forage successfully in complete darkness using echolocation. It is clear that the efficiency with which bats navigate the night sky depends on the bats’ ability to control the echo information they receive from their surroundings. The PhD project investigates how bats shape their acoustic scene through active control of the emitted echolocation calls and through active control of received echoes. The project will focus on work in our newly constructed wind tunnel utilizing a large-scale multi-microphone array and high-speed stereo video systems. The project involves a large degree of methods development and focuses on relating high-resolution echolocation beam shape reconstruction to high-speed 3D reconstruction of bat morphology.

The chosen candidate will join an innovative expanding bat echolocation lab, and be a part of the Sound Communication and Behaviour group at SDU where she/he will benefit from a vibrant social and scientific environment with excellence within bioacoustic research, over a wide range of subjects, from sound production mechanisms to hearing development and anthropogenic noise.
