POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE
** IMMEDIATE OPENINGS! **
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON
DEPARTMENT OF SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCES
Two postdoctoral fellow positions are immediately available. Recent graduates with their PhD in Neuroscience/Neurobiology, Speech and Hearing Sciences, Audiology, Biomedical Engineering, or Psychology are encouraged to apply. The ultimate goal of my program of research is to develop quick and reliable clinical measures to inform audiologists of patient-specific optimal cochlear implant settings. Cochlear implant listeners often do not have a full complement of healthy auditory neurons to stimulate and the positioning of those neurons and the electrodes is unknown. We use a multi-faceted approach that involves CT imaging, psychophysical measures, computational modeling, clinical fitting and speech perception testing. Our research is highly translational, with a foundation in basic neuroscience. The University of Washington is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
The positions are funded by an award from the National Institutes of Health (NIDCD). Salary will be commensurate with the NIH scale for postdoctoral fellows.
To apply, please send a cover letter stating research interests, CV and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Julie Bierer at jbierer@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
