Postdoctoral fellowships in primate cognition and behavior

Postdoctoral fellowships in primate cognition and behavior: The Cognitive Evolution Group, led by Dr. Alexandra Rosati at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, invites applications for up to two postdoctoral research fellows in primate cognition and behavior. Depending on the candidate’s interests and skill set, there are opportunities to work with several nonhuman primate populations including semi-free-ranging macaques at the Cayo Santiago Field Station in Puerto Rico; lemurs at the Duke Lemur Center; and/or with chimpanzees living in African sanctuaries.
