We currently have three new positions on three new grants. Two are in Physiology and one is in the modelling of auditory perception. The details are presented in the three sections below. The jobs are also advertised on our web page http://www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/cnbh Our apologies if you receive this more than once. 1. Three year Post Doctoral Position to do research on Neuronal mechanisms involved in comodulation masking release. Closing date for applications 21 February 2003 Salary scale of 18,265 to 27,339 The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing at the University of Cambridge invites applications for a post-doctoral research fellow to study the neuronal mechanisms involved in comodulation masking release. The primary activities will be the design and implementation of multi-electrode recording from the mammalian brainstem and computational data analysis. This research is funded by the Wellcome Trust. Experience in auditory neuroscience and/or computer programming would be an advantage. Further information may be obtained by email from: imw1001(at)cam.ac.uk The appointment will be for three years at a salary based on the national salary scale for post-doctoral workers (starting range 18,265 to 27,339) dependent on the applicant's age and experience. Applicants should send a letter of application supported by a full curriculum vitae to: Dr Ian M. Winter, The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing, The Physiological Laboratory, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EG by the closing date 21 February 2003 Email submission is acceptable and indeed preferable. Send to imw1001(at)cam.ac.uk The University of Cambridge is an equal opportunity employer 2. Three year Post Doctoral Position to do research on Brainstem mechanisms for the perceptual segregation and fusion of auditory objects. Closing date for applications 21 February 2003 Salary scale of 18,265 to 25,715 The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing at the University of Cambridge invites applications for a post-doctoral research fellow to study the brainstem mechanisms for the perceptual segregation and fusion of auditory objects. The primary activities will be the design, preparation, running and data analysis of computer based physiological studies using single and multi-electrode recording from the mammalian brainstem. There may also be some opportunity for computational modelling of the data obtained. This research is funded by the BBSRC and involves close collaboration with Dr Brian Roberts in the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham. Experience in auditory neuroscience and/or computer programming would be an advantage. Further information may be obtained by email from: imw1001(at)cam.ac.uk The appointment will be for three years at a salary based on the national salary scale for post-doctoral workers (starting range 18,265 to 25,715) dependent on the applicant's age and experience. Applicants should send a letter of application supported by a full curriculum vitae to: Dr Ian M. Winter, The Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing, The Physiological Laboratory, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EG by the closing date 21 February 2003. The starting date will be 17 March 2003 or soon after. Email submission is acceptable and indeed preferable. Send to imw1001(at)cam.ac.uk The University of Cambridge is an equal opportunity employer 3. One year Post Doctoral Position to do research on The Perception of Scale in Musical Sounds and Speech Closing date for applications 14 February 2003 Salary scale of 18,265 to 27,339 We hear specific vowels pronounced by men, women and children as approximately the same although the length of the vocal tract varies considerably from group to group. At the same time, we can identify the speaker group. We also recognize that musical instruments come in families (e.g., brass, string, woodwind) whose members differ in size (e.g., soprano, alto, tenor and bass). The duration of the impulse response of the vocal tract or musical instrument expands or contracts with its size, so sounds carry information about source size. In this project we intend to investigate scale perception in humans and developed a prototype system to illustrate how the auditory system might accomplish scale normalisation (see Irino, T. and Patterson, R. D. (2002). "Segregating Information about Size and Shape of the Vocal Tract using a Time-Domain Auditory Model: The Stabilised Wavelet-Mellin Transform," Speech Comm. 36, 181-203. Applicants should possess a Ph.D or equivalent degree in physiology, psychoacoustics, physics, engineering or computer science. Ideally, they should have graduate training in some aspect of hearing and should understand computer analysis and synthesis of complex sounds. The appointment will be for one year in the first instance. The post may be renewed for a further period, subject to the availability of funding. Appointment will be on the salary scale of 18,265 to 27,339 with the starting salary dependent upon experience. The closing date for applications is 14 February 2003. Applicants should send a letter of application supported by a full curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three referees to: Roy Patterson, Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing, Physiology Department, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EG, U.K. Email submission is acceptable and indeed preferable.
