R&D positions at GN ReSound

Dear List,

GN ReSound (www.gnresound.com), a Silicon-Valley-based company developing
hearing aids and audiological test equipment, is expanding its R&D division.
We are looking to fill immediately the positions of (1) a Hearing Scientist
and (2) an Algorithm Developer. Job descriptions are given below. The
successful candidates will be given the opportunity to develop and implement
new ideas to advance our hearing aids and audiological test equipment. These
positions are big in "R" and small in "D". Resumes, including a list of
publications, should be sent to hmuesch@gnresound.com
