PhD Position in Munich: Coding Strategies for Cochlear Implants

PhD Position: Coding Strategies for Cochlear Implants

Our research group deals with the development of novel algorithms for cochlear 
implants, covering the entire field from basic research in the area of 
âcomputational neuroscienceâ to psychoacoustic tests on patients.

You will be developing novel coding strategies for cochlear implants, 
modelling auditory nerve responses to electrical stimulation and evaluating 
these responses using methods from information theory and automatic speech 

You hold a university degree in electrical engineering, informatics, 
(bio-)physics or neuroscience. You have excellent programming skills and a 
keen interest in modelling and analysing electrically induced stimulation 
patterns in the auditory nerve.

What we offer you:
Thanks to our integration in the Bernstein Center for Computational 
Neuroscience Munich (www.bccn-munich.de), the Hearing Research Network 
(www.hearing.ei.tum.de) and our contacts in industry, we are able to offer an 
attractive environment with excellent prospects. The position is for a fixed 
term of three years and is remunerated according to the German Collective 
Agreement for Public Services (TV-L, this is a full position). The university 
is committed to increasing the proportion of women on its staff. Qualified women 
are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. Severely disabled candidates will 
be given preference in the case of overall equal aptitude and qualifications.

How to apply:
If you are interested in becoming part of our team, please provide 
  - a short cover letter that explains why you are interested in our research
  - a curriculum vitae including a list of grades 
  - a short description of your Master's Thesis 

and send your application per e-mail to:
