Auditory Neuroscience Job

Post-doctoral position in auditory neuroscience

'Neuronal correlates of across frequency processing in the auditory system'

The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing in the Physiology Department of
the University of Cambridge invites applications for a two-year
post-doctoral position to study the neuronal mechanisms involved in
across-frequency processing. (The position arises through the departure of
Dr Daniel Pressnitzer to a permanent position with the CNRS in IRCAM,
Paris.) The research is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is an collaborative
study between physiologists and computer modellers (Prof.Ray
Meddis at Essex University).  The applicant would work closely with Dr I M 
Winter on the physiology in Cambridge. 

Applicants should possess, or expect soon to possess, a Ph.D or equivalent
degree in physiology, psychoacoustics,  physics, engineering or computer
science.  Ideally, they should have post-graduate training in auditory
neuroscience and/or computer science. 

The appointment will be for two years at a salary based on the national
salary scale for post-doctoral scientists (16,286 to 24,479) with the
starting salary dependent upon age and experience. It will include an
additional weighting from the Wellcome Trust dependent on the applicant's
skills and experience. For further information concerning the terms and
conditions of employment, contact Ms. F. Duncan, the administrator of the
Physiology Department, at the address above, or ring her on +44 1223 333826.

Applicants should send a letter of application supported by a full
curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three referees to:

Dr Ian M. Winter, The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing, The
Physiological Laboratory, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EG

The closing date for applications is Friday 3rd December. Email submission
is acceptable.

For further details please contact Dr Ian M. Winter.
