PostDoctoral position in Auditory Neuroscience in Oldenburg, Germany
Carl von Ossietzky UniversitÃt Oldenburg,
Animal Physiology and Behavior Group,
Prof. Georg Klump,
is offering a PostDoctoral position in Auditory Neuroscience
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).
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.
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.
