Research Associate in Auditory Perception

Research Associate in Auditory Perception
Grade 7, Salary range; £27,428 to £32,751
Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate in the research group of Prof. Brian C.J. Moore, in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge.  Other members of the group include Dr. Brian R. Glasberg, Dr. Tom Baer and Dr. Michael A. Stone. 
For information about the group see: http://hearing.psychol.cam.ac.uk/
The position is funded by a Programme Grant from the Medical Research Council (U.K.) and is available from 1st October, 2011 until 30th September, 2013.
The holder of the position would be expected to co-operate in the planning, setting up, running and analysis of psychoacoustic experiments with both normally hearing and hearing-impaired subjects.  The work may also involve experiments using speech stimuli and the evaluation of signal-processing schemes for hearing aids.  There is some flexibility over exactly what would be done, and the work can be adapted to some extent to suit the interests and expertise of the applicant.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in an area closely connected with hearing, for example psychoacoustics, audiology, audio engineering or speech science.  Experience in testing hearing-impaired subjects would be an advantage.  Experience in programming (including Matlab) would also be an advantage.
