Applications are sought for a 3-year post-doctoral position in auditory neuroscience at the Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing in the Physiology Department of the University of Cambridge. The position arises from a Cooperative Group Grant awarded by the Medical Research Council to provide core funding for collaborative auditory research in the Cambridge area. (Roy Patterson and Ian Winter, Physiology Dept., Cambridge; Brian Moore, Experimental Psychology Dept., Cambridge; Ray Meddis, Psychology Dept., Essex). The topic area is "Temporal Processing in the auditory system from cochlea to cortex." The project involves 1) development of a physiological gammachirp auditory filter (Irino and Patterson, 1997, JASA). 2) measurement and analysis of the responses of the primary projection neurons in the cochlear nucleus and inferior colliculus to sounds with varying temporal asymmetry (Patterson, 1994a, JASA) and varying temporal regularity (Yost et al., 1996, JASA; Patterson et al., 1996, JASA). 3) development of a physiological version of the auditory image (Patterson, 1994b, JASA) in the form of a two-dimensional array of dynamic time-interval histograms that will stabilise the repeating neural patterns produced in the auditory nerve by temporally regular sounds. 4) development of an auditory Mellin transform to extract source shape information from the auditory image independent of the size of the source or the pitch of the sound (Irino and Patterson, 1999, Eurospeech99). The successful candidate would need to be involved in at least two of these areas and could be involved in all four.
