Research Studentship - Hearing Research The Hearing Research Trust has agreed to sponser a Research Studentship for work in the laboratory of Dr. Brian C.J. Moore, in the Department of Experimental Psychology at Cambridge. The student would be expected to work for a Ph.D. degree, and the Studentship will pay University/College fees plus living expenses (at normal MRC rates) for three years. The topic of the project is outlined below. In everyday life it is common for many sounds to be active at the same time. The auditory system has the task of analysing the components of the mixed sound and deciding which components "belong" to each sound source. This process is known as "perceptual grouping". It is usually accomplished with ease by normally hearing persons, but is accomplished imperfectly and with difficulty by hearing-impaired persons. This project would study the process of perceptual grouping in hearing-impaired persons, using experimental methods that have previously been applied only to normally hearing people. The aim would be to improve our understanding of why hearing-impaired people have difficulty with perceptual grouping. The results should ultimately be applicable to the design of new types of hearing aids that would enhance the ability to carry out perceptual grouping. Applicants should send a CV and the names and addresses of at least two referees to Dr. B.C.J. Moore, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3EB, England. Applications may also be sent via email to: bcjm(at)
