Postdoctoral position (Psychoacoustics and Computational Modeling)
Purdue University, Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences
A 1-2 year NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Psychoacoustics Laboratory at Purdue University. Our laboratory uses a coordinated approach involving psychoacoustics and computational modeling to relate perceptual and physiological aspects of normal hearing and sensorineural hearing loss. In this project, the candidate will perform psychoacoustic experiments and computational modeling to evaluate psychoacoustic measures of cochlear gain and frequency selectivity and potential effects of efferent feedback on perceptual measures. There is also the potential to include a neurophysiological component (in collaboration with Dr. Michael Heinz). Experience in psychoacoustics and computational modeling is desired, but strong candidates with experience in neurophysiology or related areas will be considered.
This position will provide the candidate with extensive opportunities for collaboration through the interdisciplinary Purdue Hearing and Acoustics in Science and Engineering (PHASE) program (http://www.purdue.edu/research/phase/), which includes hearing scientists from the departments of Speech Language and Hearing Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Biological Sciences.
For informal inquiries about the position, or for information about the formal application procedures, contact Dr. Elizabeth Strickland (estrick@xxxxxxxxxx; 765-494-3804).
