Postdoctoral position opening

        Postdoctoral Opportunity in Basic and Clinical Psychoacoustics

The Experimental Audiology Research Laboratory of the V. A. Medical Center in
Martinez, California is currently seeking a postdoctoral fellow for a
appointment funded through the V. A. Associate Investigator Program. To
qualify, applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in experimental psychology or
speech and hearing science between October 1, 1995 and April 1, 1999, must
have a publication record, and must have U.S. citizenship. Experience in
computer-based psychoacoustic research is required. Background in signal
processing, sound localization, and computer programming (mostly
such as Matlab, UNIX shell scripting, etc.) as well as basic understanding of
networked PC hardware are highly desired.

Studies in our laboratory focus on the psychophysics of auditory scene
analysis, spatial hearing, and the processing of complex auditory information
in normal-hearing, hearing-impaired, and elderly listeners, as well as in
populations with specific central nervous system lesions. The incumbent is
expected to do work on ongoing projects but will be also given the
to work on research topics of his/her own choosing, to the extent that they
consistent with the general aim of the funded programs.

Salary is commensurate with experience. The incumbent will receive medical
retirement benefits. Martinez is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, about
