PostDoctoral position in Auditory Neuroscience in Oldenburg, Germany

Dear list,

Carl von Ossietzky UniversitÃt Oldenburg,
Animal Physiology and Behavior Group,
Prof. Georg Klump,

is offering a PostDoctoral position in Auditory Neuroscience

Our lab

Our group is broadly interested in the mechanisms of auditory scene analysis in vertebrates. A hallmark of the lab is a combination of electrophysiological and behavioral studies in birds and rodents. We are part of a vibrant community of auditory and sensory neuroscience groups in Oldenburg, joined in the collaborative research centre âThe Active Auditory Systemâ (www.active-hearing.eu), the âCentre for Hearing Researchâ (Zentrum fÃr HÃrforschung), and the âResearch Centre Neurosensory Scienceâ (Forschungszentrum Neurosensorik).

The project

We are looking for a postdoc to study mechanisms of central auditory processing in rodents. Main research focus in the project is the segregation of sounds from interfering sources. Topics include the localization of signals in mixtures of sounds, the integration of sequential signals in source segregation, and the role of acoustic cues in the segregation of simultaneous signals.

Your profile

Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant field (e.g., Neuroscience, Physiology, Biomedical Engineering). We are seeking outstanding candidates with extensive knowledge in at least one of the following methods: in-vivo neurophysiology, imaging using voltage sensitive dyes, RNA interference in the CNS. Matlab skills will be helpful.

The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the proportion of women in science, so we especially encourage female candidates to apply. Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.

The position is available from 1 May 2011, for initially 2 years, with prospect for continuation. Payment is between approx. â 22.500 and â 25.500 net annually (depending on previous experience, German TV-L E13). Please send your application including CV, potential referees, links to recent publications, and a copy of your Ph.D. thesis to Prof. Georg Klump (Georg.Klump@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) who can also be contacted for further questions. Interviewing of candidates will start on 1 March 2011 and will continue until the position is filled.
