PhD position in hearing aid research (Oldenburg University, Eriksholm Research Ce ntre, HörTech Oldenburg)

Dear list,

I would like to announce a PhD position in my group within the Medical Physics Section, Oldenburg University, Germany in close collaboration with the Eriksholm Research Centre, Oticon A/S, Denmark, and HörTech gGmbH, Oldenburg, Germany.

Effects of advanced hearing aid signal processing on spatial awareness perception

Hearing-impaired listeners experience great difficulty not only with participating in group conversations and with listening in noise, but also with judging distance and movement, especially in complex listening situations. Current hearing aids can do little to improve these abilities. This PhD project therefore aims to identify possible avenues for their improvement by studying the effects of advanced hearing aid processing schemes on so-called spatial awareness perception. It constitutes an excellent opportunity for a motivated individual interested in pursuing experimental hearing aid research at the intersection of academia and industry.

More information about the project is available from the following website:

Deadline for applications is June 30th 2014. Interested candidates are welcome to contact me for further details.

Best, Tobias Neher
