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.
