POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in spatial perception of bilateral cochlear-implant users

A two-year postdoctoral research position is available at the University of Maryland, College Park working with Matthew Goupell. The project will involve psychoacoustical testing and neural modeling of sound localization abilities and speech understanding in noise for adult bilateral cochlear-implant users.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience, experimental psychology, engineering, or related discipline, and have an interest in cochlear implants and/or binaural hearing. Solid programming ability and familiarity with Matlab is essential.

The position is funded by the NIDCD and the Center for Comparative and Evolutionary Biology of Hearing P30 grant (C-CEBH: http://www.ccebh.umd.edu/). Because of the P30 funding, applicants must be a US citizen or green card holder. For best consideration, application materials should be received by October 31, 2012, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The start date is flexible.
