The cluster of excellence Hearing4all: Models, Technology and Solutions 
for Diagnostics, Restoration and Support of Hearing at the Carl von 
Ossietzky Universit├Ąt Oldenburg (in collaboration with Medizinische 
Hochschule Hannover and Leibniz Universit├Ąt Hannover) is seeking to fill 
the position of a

*Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Auditory 
Psychophysiology *

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.
