postdoctoral position available


A postdoctoral position is available at Cambridge to work on a project
entitled "Temporal processing in pitch perception and concurrent sound
segregation". The post has arisen because the present incumbent is leaving
to take up a permanent research position elsewhere. There are approximately
twenty-two months remaining on the grant, which has been
awarded by the Wellcome Trust to Prof. B.C.J. Moore, in
collaboration with Dr. R.P. Carlyon. The salary will depend on the age and
experience of the successful applicant, who will probably have completed
his or her Ph.D. within the last two to three years. Salaries paid by the
Wellcome trust are linked to those paid by U.K. Research Councils and
Universities, but are, on average, about 2000 pounds higher. The position
is available from October 1st 1997, but a later start time may be negotiated.

It is expected that the successful applicant will have a Ph.D in
psychoacoustics or a related discipline. Ideally, he or she will have some
experience in the field of pitch perception and/or concurrent sound
segregation, but applications from those with proven ability in any area of
the field are encouraged. The ability to program, set up, and run
psychoacoustical experiments is essential, and the appointee will be
expected to contribute to the design of new experiments as the need arises.
It may be possible for a candidate with an interest in cochlear implant
research to test some of the ideas in the grant on patients at the local

Informal queries and applications should be sent by either electronic or
regular mail to Dr. Carlyon at the address below.

NOTE: This post is separate from those recently advertised by Roy Patterson
at the Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing
(http://www.mrc-apu.cam.ac.uk/personal/roy.patterson/cnbh/index.html), also
in Cambridge. We all agree that candidates wishing to apply for jobs at
both institutions should not be discouraged from doing so.
