PhD STUDENTSHIP: measures of auditory function

The Human Communication and Deafness Group, University of Manchester, seeks
to recruit a high calibre graduate for a PhD studentship funded by the RNID.
Applicants should have a good first degree (first class or upper second
class) in a suitable subject area, and be interested in pursuing a research
career in audiology and hearing science. Applications from those with a
background in physiology, psychology, biological sciences, audiology, or
related fields would be particularly welcomed, as would applicants with a
clinical background and with evidence of research interest and potential.

The student will carry out a supervised plan of research into the
relationships between elctrophysiological and psychacoustic measures of
auditory function with human subjects; the research is likely to have both
fundamental and clinically applicable elements, and will be under the
supervision of Dr David Parker and Dr Richard Baker.

Funding is for three years fulltime. A stipend of 14,200 per annum is
attached to the studentship, with allowances for travel to conferences and
other training needs. The student will attend research-related taught
