Postdoctoral Research Position Available

A postdoctoral research position is available on an NIH-funded project studying the effects of acoustic reflections on human sound localization and speech communication.  Foci of the project include study of adaptive perceptual processes that facilitate listening performance in reflective environments and the potential impact of hearing loss on these processes.  Training opportunities in virtual auditory space simulation technologies will be available, as these technologies are used extensively throughout the project.  Additional information about the project and the research laboratory is available at www.louisville.edu/psychology/zahorik.

Project activities take place at both the Heuser Hearing Research Center (www.thehearinginstitute.org) and at the University of Louisville, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences (www.louisville.edu/psychology).  Together, these environments offer outstanding research facilities, including a new anechoic chamber facility due to be completed this Fall, as well as a broad and active research community in human perception and performance.  

This is a 2-year position, with options for extension contingent on available funding.  Stipend levels for the position are set by NIH and are commensurate with experience.  Details are available at:  http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-09-075.html 

Candidates with doctoral training in a field closely related to the hearing sciences are invited to apply.  Skills in human psychoacoustics, signal processing, and programming in MATLAB are all desirable. Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three references to:

Dr. Pavel Zahorik
Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences 
University of Louisville
