POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE A postdoctoral position is available at Cambridge to work on a project entitled "Temporal processing in pitch perception and concurrent sound segregation". The post has arisen because the present incumbent is leaving to take up a permanent research position elsewhere. There are approximately twenty-two months remaining on the grant, which has been awarded by the Wellcome Trust to Prof. B.C.J. Moore, in collaboration with Dr. R.P. Carlyon. The salary will depend on the age and experience of the successful applicant, who will probably have completed his or her Ph.D. within the last two to three years. Salaries paid by the Wellcome trust are linked to those paid by U.K. Research Councils and Universities, but are, on average, about 2000 pounds higher. The position is available from October 1st 1997, but a later start time may be negotiated. It is expected that the successful applicant will have a Ph.D in psychoacoustics or a related discipline. Ideally, he or she will have some experience in the field of pitch perception and/or concurrent sound segregation, but applications from those with proven ability in any area of the field are encouraged. The ability to program, set up, and run psychoacoustical experiments is essential, and the appointee will be expected to contribute to the design of new experiments as the need arises. It may be possible for a candidate with an interest in cochlear implant research to test some of the ideas in the grant on patients at the local hospital. Informal queries and applications should be sent by either electronic or regular mail to Dr. Carlyon at the address below. NOTE: This post is separate from those recently advertised by Roy Patterson at the Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing (, also in Cambridge. We all agree that candidates wishing to apply for jobs at both institutions should not be discouraged from doing so. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bob Carlyon MRC Applied Psychology Unit 15 Chaucer Rd.
