[AUDITORY] Post-doc opportunity at Technical University of Denmark & Eriksholm Research Centre on the assessment of listening-related fatigue

Dear colleagues

The Hearing Systems Section at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) seeks a qualified candidate for a 2.5-year postdoc position in collaboration with Eriksholm Research Centre.

The post-doctoral researcher will join the project ‘ALFi: Assessment of listening fatigue in daily life’, which aims to develop methods to predict the additional cognitive effort that hearing-aid users typically need to exert, compared to normal-hearing peers, when listening in noisy environments in everyday life. This project will employ a hybrid experimental approach combining laboratory tests with longitudinal field trials spanning several weeks. More specifically, the aim is to design and carry out experiments to study fatigue in hearing-aid users by applying methods such as pupillometry and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).


The candidate’s main working places will be at DTU Hearing Systems (Lyngby, Denmark) and Oticon Eriksholm Research Centre (Snekkersten, Denmark). The project will be performed in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen.


The application deadline is 1 June 2023. Applicants are required to have a Ph.D in hearing science, auditory or cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychology, audiology, biomedical engineering, or a similarly relevant discipline and have prior experience with pupillometry and/or fNIRS.
