Job offers: 13 Postdoc positions in Oldenburg, Germany

Dear list,

The cluster of excellence Hearing4all: Models, Technology and Solutions for Diagnostics, Restoration and Support of Hearing at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (in collaboration with Medizinische Hochschule Hannover and Leibniz Universität Hannover) is seeking to fill as soon as possible the following

Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions

A) "Transgenic Animal Production/Mouse Genetics" (TV-L E13, full time)
(genetic mouse models to study the molecular basis of auditory dysfunction)

B) "Auditory Physiology" (TV-L E13, full time)
(neuronal responses on different levels of the auditory pathway in rodents)

C) "Animal Psychophysics" (TV-L E13, full time)
(auditory perception of rodents with normal hearing and pathophysiological changes, behavioral tests with mutant and transgenic mouse lines)

D) "Computational Auditory Neuroscience" (TV-L E13, full time)
(physiologically realistic models of auditory information processing, neural coding on different levels of the auditory system, integration of models)

E) "Auditory Psychophysiology" (TV-L E13, full time)
(hearing disorder related maladaptive plasticity in the human auditory cortex, auditory cortex adaption to hearing device use, auditory neurofeedback)

F) "Auditory Neuroscience & BCI" (TV-L E13, full time)
(auditory EEG-based brain computer interface (BCI), auditory neurofeedback)

G) "Auditory Neuroimaging" (TV-L E13, full time)
(fMRI, MRI, DTI and advanced analysis methods of central auditory processing for the functional characterization of the individual, improvement of diagnostics)

H) "Auditory Cognition" (TV-L E13, full time)
(improvement of audiological diagnostic tools for predicting patient performance, quantitative models and statistical decision tools for diagnosis and rehabilitation)

I) "Psycholinguistics" (TV-L E13, full time)
(role of sentence complexity and grammar in understanding speech in different populations and under different conditions (i.e. silence, noise))

J) "Auditory Modeling & Signal Processing for Hearing Instruments" (TV-L E 14, full time) (development and implementation of model-based algorithms for audio processing in hearing instruments, contribution to evaluation with hearing-impaired subjects)

K) "Acoustical Signal Processing" (TV-L E14, full time)
(development and implementation of advanced algorithms for speech enhancement and sound presentation in hearing instruments and assistive listening devices.)

L) "Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA)" (TV-L E13, full time)
(development of CASA methods for hearing aids and assistive technology, development of algorithms for improving speech intelligibility in complex acoustic scenes)

M) "Hearing Aid Algorithm Evaluation & Individualization" (TV-L E14, full time) (tests of prototype hearing devices with patients, fitting methods for experimental hearing devices based on personalized diagnostic data)

The positions are available from 1 November 2012, for initially 2 years, with prospect for continuation for up to 3 more years. The positions are suitable for part-time work.

The successful candidates are expected to actively contribute to the cluster of excellence "Hearing4all" and to the further structured research programmes within the Centre of Excellence for Hearing Research, i.e. the collaborative research centre "The Active Auditory System" (SFB/TRR31), the research unit "Individualized Hearing Acoustics", the national centre of competence for hearing technology (HörTech) and the PhD programs "Function and Pathophysiology of the Auditory System" and "Signals and Cognition".

A successful candidate is expected to have an academic university degree, be able to perform excellent scientific work usually demonstrated by international publications and should be experienced in at least one of the respective research areas listed above. She/He should be qualified for assuming an important research function within the task groups (TG) of the cluster of excellence (c.f. www.hearing4all.de for further details about the positions). Please indicate in your application for which position(s) you apply.

The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the proportion of women in science, so we especially encourage female candidates to apply. Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.

Please send your application at the latest by October 31st, 2012 to Prof. Dr. Dr. Birger Kollmeier, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Fakultät V, Exzellenzcluster "Hearing4all", 26111 Oldenburg (or per e-mail: Karin.Klink@)uni-oldenburg.de). Application by e-mail is preferred. The application should include a CV, a list of publications and copies of certificates of academic grades.
