The cluster of excellence Hearing4all:
Postdoctoral Research Associate
in the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The position is suitable for part-time work.
A paramount goal of the cluster of excellence Hearing4all (www.hearing4all.de) is to transform audiology into an “exact” science based on the interplay between experiment and theory as well as between basic science and clinical research. In the framework provided by the cluster the successful candidate is expected to contribute to one of the research goals of the cluster in task group 3 "Functional Characterization of the Individual" and in task group 6 "Hearing Support for the Subclinical Population", e.g., to analyze the conditions for the occurrence of auditory space recalibration under multisensory experience, its extent and persistence and to develop quantitative models and statistical decision tools.
Candidates are expected to have an academic university degree in the field of psychology, applied statistics, biology, physics, neuroscience, or a related discipline and have shown their ability to perform excellent scientific work, usually demonstrated by the outstanding quality of their Doctorate/PhD research and a good publication record. We are seeking candidates with strong experimental, analytical, modeling and programming skills, and extensive knowledge in at least one of the following: auditory psychophysics, speech and cognition, statistical modelling techniques and data mining, or neurophysiological techniques. In particular, knowledge about human auditory processing would be a clear advantage.
The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the proportion of women in science, so we especially encourage female candidates to apply. Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.
The position is available from 1 Novenber 2013, for initially 2 years, with prospect for continuation for up to 2 more years. Payment is depending on previous experience (German TV-L E13, full time).
