This work, the scientists maintain, now provides a unified experimental framework for researchers studying topics as diverse as cultural evolution, neuroethology (biology of song development) and quantitative genetics.
A background in animal acoustic communication, neuroethology, psychoacoustics, electrophysiology or auditory neurophysiology is preferred, and the candidate should have demonstrated competence in conducting experiments in one or more of these disciplines.
Crustaceans have frequently been used to study the neuroethology of both agonistic behavior and circadian rhythms, but whether their highly stereotyped and quantifiable agonistic activity is controlled by circadian pacemakers has, so far, not been investigated.
