Opportunities at Advanced Bionics

Dear List,
Advanced Bionics is a company that develops cochlear implant technology. Our recent partnership with Sonova/Phonak (a hearing aid company) brings many exciting opportunities. There are several openings for a broad, experienced research DSP engineers to join the research team that is focused on signal processing in next-generation cochlear implant systems. A sample job description is included below.
If you are interested, please send your resume to me at: LeonidL@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (or simply reply to this email).
I look forward to hearing from you!


Research DSP Engineer


A. Primary Function

Provide technical support, and contribute to efforts of the existing team that conducts research on optimal ways of encoding speech and music for cochlear implant recipients.


B. Duties and responsibilities
