Post-doctoral position in psychoacoustics.

A 12-month post-doctoral position in auditory-perception research is opening 
in the « Action and Cognition in Operational Situation » at the Army 
Biomedical Research Institute (Institut de Recherche
Biomédicale des Armées), Brétigny sur Orge, Essonne, Ile de France (near 
The successful applicant will investigate effects of cochlear damages, 
ageing, and cognitive alterations on the perception and localization of 
sound signals. The study is part of the ?TROUVE? (?FIND?) project, which is 
funded by the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale pour la 
Recherche). The long-term goal of project ?TROUVE? is to develop solutions 
that can help individuals with moderate cognitive deficits to locate useful 
everyday-life objects, such as keys, or a wallet. The position of the object 
is indicated by a virtual sound source. Depending on the results of the 
initial psychoacoustical investigation, the post-doctoral researcher will be 
given the opportunity to investigate various sound-spatialisation techniques 
(including air and bone conduction, as well as transaural), and to submit 
the work for publication in a scientific journal.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in cognitive science, neuroscience, 
acoustics, or audio signal processing. Some knowledge of psychoacoustics is 
required. Some knowledge of acoustics and signal processing will be a plus.
The position is full-time and based at the Institut de Recherche Biomédicale 
des Armées, Brétigny sur Orge, Essonne, Ile de France (near Paris). The work 
contract (12 months initially, with a possibility of extension) will be 
managed by the French Defense Ministry. Only nationals of the European Union 
can be considered for this position.
Salary will be commensurate with training and experience according to French 
Defense Ministry pay scale rules.
The applicant is expected to start in, or soon after, June 1st, 2013.
