Postdoctoral Research Opportunity at the NCRAR

NIH funding is available for a postdoctoral scientist to join the 
laboratory of Michelle Molis at the National Center for Rehabilitative 
Auditory Research (NCRAR), located at the Portland VA Medical Center and 
associated with the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU).

The project, entitled “Perception of Dynamic Acoustic Signals by Hearing-
Impaired Listeners”, compares the performance of normally-hearing and 
hearing-impaired listeners on a number of tasks designed to assess basic 
perceptual abilities in response to complex, non-speech auditory stimuli. 
Based on the results of these behavioral measures, a computational model 
will be developed that can account for differences in speech 
intelligibility due to hearing status and stimulus characteristics.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Communication 
Sciences and Disorders, Neuroscience, or related fields.  Individuals who 
have experience with psychophysical methods, speech processing, digital 
signal processing, computational modeling, and MATLAB programming are 
especially encouraged to apply. 

The NCRAR is a Dept. of Veterans Affairs Center of Excellence, and the 
only such center dedicated to the discovery and delivery of cutting-edge 
solutions to auditory system impairments. Founded in 1997, the NCRAR 
strives to distinguish itself by focusing on the rehabilitation of 
auditory dysfunction and translation of research findings into practice.
