post-doc position in auditory neuroscience at UCL, London

Dear Colleagues,

I would appreciate it if you could forward this announcement to those who might be interested within your departments:


A 4 year post-doctoral research associate position is available to work on a European Council-funded project that will use psychophysics, eye tracking and EEG to investigate auditory attention. We aim to understand the brain mechanisms involved in selective attention, and create a brain-machine interface able to identify listeners attentional focus in real time.   This research program is part of an international project (“Cognitively controlled Hearing Aid”) which includes partners in ENS, France (Shihab Shamma, Alain de Cheveigne, Daniel Pressnitzer), DTU, Denmark (Torsten Dau), UZH, Switzerland (Shih-Chii Liu) and Oticon (Thomas Lunner) .

You will be supervised by Dr Maria Chait and based at the UCL Ear Institute (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ear/research/chaitlab).

Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £33,353 - £37,152 per annum

Applicants should hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) in an engineering or Neuroscience-related subject and have substantial experience in digital signal processing and computer programming. Previous experience with auditory research and/or functional brain imaging is desirable.


For an informal discussion please contact Dr. Maria Chait (m.chait@xxxxxxxxx). Application should be made via the UCL website: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/jobs/  (Ref:1443980)


The UCL Ear Institute provides state-of-the-art research facilities across a wide range of disciplines and is one of the foremost centres for hearing, speech and language-related research within Europe.
