In our Domestication Lab, Vienna, Austria, we seek a postdoctoral scientist with research interests in behavioral and cognitive ecology that will complement and build upon existing lab strengths in animal behavior and cognition. Our research focuses on understanding the effects of domestication on animals’ social behaviour, personality, physical and social cognition by studying wolves and dogs in captive settings as well as in free-ranging populations. To complement our approach and to better understand how the socio-ecology of these species might affect their behavior and cognition, we seek a new team member with a strong theoretical and methodological background in behavioural ecology, a keen interest in exploring how such theories and methods can be applied to dog domestication research and a strong dedication to high quality research. The candidate will be (co-) responsible for managing a field research side spending cosiderable time abroad and applying for third-party funding
