The audiology research group at UMCG

The audiology research group at UMCG offers a unique opportunity to researchers to work in a clinical setting, in close collaboration with medical staff. Further, the group is embedded in both Graduate School of Medical Sciences and Research School of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, providing a rich training environment for PhD students. We have access to and experience on several research tools, including eye tracking and pupillometry, which will be used in the PhD projects offered.
