PHD position in Aalto University, Finland
A PhD position available in the spatial sound research team at the Aalto
The team (~15 members) has been working on spatial audio techniques and on
perception of spatial sound for more than a decade already. A position is
opened to the project on functional modeling of brain mechanisms in
auditory pathway devoted to spatial hearing. In the project, the
functionality and anatomy of brain organs is studied, and a network is
built having functionally similar DSP blocks in equal topology. The
information available on psychoacoustics, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology
is used in the work, and possibly new psychophysical tests are conducted
to fine-tune the parameters in the model.
Reverse engineering of the brains is a good DSP exercise
The applicants should hold MSc in relevant field, and should have
experience at least some of the following fields or skills
- digital signal processing
The project is funded by ERC starting researcher grant, Academy of Finland
and by Aalto University. The contract would be made for 2+2 years.
Please send to address Ville.Pulkki@xxxxxxxx during April 2013 a free-form
application with CV and other relevant attachments. Please state also 1-2
Questions: pls contact me directly.
