Post-doctoral position in pitch perception with cochlear implant

Post-doctoral position in pitch perception with cochlear implant


Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, Purdue University


Applications are invited for a 2-year NIH-funded post-doctoral position in the Auditory Implants and Speech Perception Lab at Purdue University.  In this project, we use psychophysical methods to study the mechanisms of dynamic pitch perception with cochlear implants.  We are also interested in using electrophysiological measures and computational models of cochlear implant stimulation to explain and complement our psychophysical results.  A Ph.D. degree in a related discipline and research experience in psychophysics and cochlear implants is desired.  Strong applicants with expertise in electrophysiology, computational modeling, or signal processing will also be considered.  The idea candidate is expected to design experiments, test human subjects, and prepare manuscripts and presentations.  Through the interdisciplinary Purdue Hearing and Acoustics in Science and Engineering (PHASE) program (http://www.purdue.edu/research/phase/), this position offers unique opportunities for research collaboration with hearing scientists from the departments of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Biological Sciences.  For informal inquiries about the position or to formally apply for this position, please contact Xin Luo, Ph.D. (luo5@xxxxxxxxxx or 765-496-7267).
