The cluster of excellence Hearing4all: Models, Technology and Solutions
for Diagnostics, Restoration and Support of Hearing at the Carl von
Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (in collaboration with Medizinische
Hochschule Hannover and Leibniz Universität Hannover) is seeking to fill
the position of a
*Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Auditory
in the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
The position is available from 1 September 2013, for initially 2 years,
with prospect for continuation for up to 2.5 more years. Payment is
depending on previous experience (German TV-L E13, full time).
A paramount goal of the cluster of excellence Hearing4all
(www.hearing4all.de) is to transform audiology into an "exact" science
based on the interplay between experiment and theory as well as between
basic science and clinical research. In the framework provided by the
cluster the successful candidate is expected to contribute to the
research goals of task group 2 "Audioneurotechnology and theragnostics"
or task group 7 "Brain-computer interface for hearing devices", e.g., by:
- studying hearing disorder related maladaptive plasticity in the human
auditory cortex with non-invasive techniques (EEG, MEG, NIRS);
- electrophysiological characterisation of auditory cortex adaption to
hearing device use (hearing aids, cochlear implants);
- the role of auditory neurofeedback on speech comprehension;
- the role of multisensory processes in auditory rehabilitation.
Candidates are expected to have an academic university degree in the
field of psychology, biology, neuroscience, or a related discipline and
have shown their ability to perform excellent scientific work, usually
demonstrated by the outstanding quality of their Doctorate/PhD research
and a good publication record. We are seeking candidates with extensive
knowledge in at least one of the following methods: advanced EEG
recording and analysis; near-infrared spectroscopy. Excellent Matlab
skills are mandatory and good knowledge of EEG analysis software suites
(e.g., EEGLAB, Fieldtrip, BESA, LORETA) will be an asset. It is also
necessary to have a background in experimental psychology, and knowledge
of the German language is required. The Department of Psychology will
offer an attractive scientific environment with access to research
dedicated state-of-the-art approaches to human neurophysiological
techniques (fMRI, NIRS, EEG, MEG, mobile EEG and mobile eye-tracking).
The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the proportion of women
in science, so we especially encourage female candidates to apply.
Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.
Please send your application including a cover letter, CV, list of
potential referees, links to recent publications, and copies of
certificates for academic grades by email to Prof. Stefan Debener
(Stefan.Debener at uni-oldenburg.de
<mailto:Stefan.Debener at uni-oldenburg.de>). Feel free to contact Stefan
Debener for further questions regarding the position. The application
deadline is July 15, 2013.
