Post-Doc Position to study cortical responses to cochlear implant stimulation

Post-Doctoral Position: Auditory cortex responses to cochlear-implant stimulation

An NIH-funded post-doctoral position is available at the Kresge Hearing Research Institute at the
University of Michigan to work in the laboratory of Dr. John Middlebrooks. The research would
involve quantitative evaluation of the responses of auditory cortical neurons to stimulation of a
cochlear implant. Multi-channel recording probes are used to record unit activity simultaneously
from 16 sites in the auditory cortex of the anesthetized guinea pig. The project could involve
correlated psychophysical studies in guinea-pig and/or human subjects under the direction of Dr.
Bryan Pfingst. Applicants should have experience in auditory neuroscience and familiarity with
computer-controlled stimulus presentation and data acquisition. Contact Dr. Middlebrooks at
