Job offer - please post it on the AUDITORY LIST

The Signal Processing group at the University of Oldenburg (Germany) seeks applications for 


1 PhD student in Acoustical Signal Processing


for the duration of 3 years.


We are seeking candidates with a Master (or equivalent) degree in electrical engineering, computer science or physics, who have excellent grades and a solid scientific background in acoustics, signal processing, speech processing and/or auditory perception. Familiarity with scientific tools and programming languages such as MATLAB and C is highly recommended. Research experience in any of the mentioned fields, a strong interest in interdisciplinary and application-oriented work, as well as good English language skills are desirable.


The successful applicant will join a newly established research group, whose activities center around signal processing for acoustical applications. More specifically, exciting research topics in the areas of microphone array processing for speech enhancement and source localisation, active noise control, acoustic sensor networks and hearing aid processing are addressed. The Signal Processing group has close collaborations with the Medical Physics group, the Centre for Hearing Research and the Fraunhofer group for Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology.


The successful candidate will be a member of the newly established PhD Programme “Function and Pathophysiology of the Auditory Sytem” (http://www.phd-program-hearing.de/) and receives a Georg Christoph Lichtenberg scholarship for a period of 3 years. Apart from conducting research that leads to journal publications and a PhD thesis, the PhD student is expected to take graduate courses offered by the PhD programme.
