PhD studenstship, Southampton University (UK), Modelling electrocochlear responses.

Dear List,

Funded PhD Studentship:  Modelling electrocochlear responses in auditory neuropathy patients


A PhD studentship is available at the University of Southampton, in the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research. 

The aim of the project is to improve understanding of electrophysiological measurements obtained from the cochlear in patients with a view to improving diagnostic techniques for auditory neuropathy. 


Funding covers University tuition fees for UK/EU candidates, plus a student stipend for a period of 3 years, starting in October 2014.  Funding is from Action on Hearing Loss.


The project is suitable for someone with a background in analysing electrical and mechanical systems. Knowledge of electrophysiology would be helpful, but not essential. No prior knowledge of auditory science is required as the project student will be working with hearing scientists and clinicians.


Please contact Ben Lineton by email: B.Lineton@xxxxxxxxxxx for informal discussions, by 31 April 2014.
