Two Postdoc Positions at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory

Two Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available in the Auditory Research
Team (ART) of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Human Research and
Engineering Directorate.   The Auditory Research Team carries out research
activities in psychoacoustics, speech communication, and advanced audio
displays.  Basic research topics include sound detection and localization,
hearing protection, speech communication in adverse environments, and
auditory skills development. In addition to basic research studies the
group conducts applied work relating to auditory virtual reality and
soldier auditory performance on the battlefield.  The group has access to
the world-class Hostile Environment Simulator, three outdoor ranges, and
several laboratory spaces.  Postdoctoral fellows will be primarily involved
in studies of auditory signal detection and auditory spatial perception
leading toward the development of computational models of the human
auditory system.

Successful candidates will have a doctoral degree in industrial
engineering, psychology, audiology, acoustics, hearing science, electrical
engineering or other discipline related to research in psychoacoustics or
advanced audio systems; be a U.S. citizen; and have or be able to obtain a
secret security clearance. In addition, suitable applicants should have
good signal processing skills and programming expertise in C++, Visual
Basic, or Matlab. Each postdoctoral contract is for twelve months with a
salary up to $58,000 depending on experience.  Contract extension for
another twelve-month period is possible although not guaranteed.

Interested applicants should send a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and
two letters of recommendation to the following address:

U.S. Army Research Laboratory

Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD 21005-5425

Both positions are available immediately, however administrative processing
of applications may take up to three months.  E-mail inquires may be sent
