PhD Position: Coding Strategies for Cochlear Implants Our research group deals with the development of novel algorithms for cochlear implants, covering the entire field from basic research in the area of “computational neuroscience” to psychoacoustic tests on patients. Responsibilities: You will be developing novel coding strategies for cochlear implants, modelling auditory nerve responses to electrical stimulation and evaluating these responses using methods from information theory and automatic speech recognition. Requirements: You hold a university degree in electrical engineering, informatics, (bio-)physics or neuroscience. You have excellent programming skills and a keen interest in modelling and analysing electrically induced stimulation patterns in the auditory nerve. What we offer you: Thanks to our integration in the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Munich (, the Hearing Research Network ( and our contacts in industry, we are able to offer an attractive environment with excellent prospects. The position is for a fixed term of three years and is remunerated according to the German Collective Agreement for Public Services (TV-L, this is a full position). The university is committed to increasing the proportion of women on its staff. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. Severely disabled candidates will be given preference in the case of overall equal aptitude and qualifications. How to apply: If you are interested in becoming part of our team, please provide - a short cover letter that explains why you are interested in our research - a curriculum vitae including a list of grades - a short description of your Master's Thesis and send your application per e-mail to: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Werner Hemmert (werner.hemmert@xxxxxxxx) Technische Universität München Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Bio-Inspired Information Processing IMETUM – Institute for Medical Engineering Boltzmannstr. 11 85748 Garching / Munich GERMANY More information about our research projects is available at -- Prof. Dr.-Ing.
