A 12-month post-doctoral position in auditory-perception research is opening in the « Action and Cognition in Operational Situation » at the Army Biomedical Research Institute (Institut de Recherche Biomédicale des Armées), Brétigny sur Orge, Essonne, Ile de France (near Paris). The successful applicant will investigate effects of cochlear damages, ageing, and cognitive alterations on the perception and localization of sound signals. The study is part of the “TROUVE” (“FIND”) project, which is funded by the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale pour la Recherche). The long-term goal of project “TROUVE” is to develop solutions that can help individuals with moderate cognitive deficits to locate useful everyday-life objects, such as keys, or a wallet. The position of the object is indicated by a virtual sound source. Depending on the results of the initial psychoacoustical investigation, the post-doctoral researcher will be given the opportunity to investigate various sound-spatialisation techniques (including air and bone conduction, as well as transaural), and to submit the work for publication in a scientific journal. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in cognitive science, neuroscience, acoustics, or audio signal processing. Some knowledge of psychoacoustics is required. Some knowledge of acoustics and signal processing will be a plus. The position is full-time and based at the Institut de Recherche Biomédicale des Armées, Brétigny sur Orge, Essonne, Ile de France (near Paris). The work contract (12 months initially, with a possibility of extension) will be managed by the French Defense Ministry. Only nationals of the European Union can be considered for this position. Salary will be commensurate with training and experience according to French Defense Ministry pay scale rules. The applicant is expected to start in, or soon after, June 1st, 2013. For additional information please contact Guillaume Andéol at the address below. To apply, please attach a CV and motivation letter.
