The collaborative research centre Hearing acoustics (coordinator: Prof. Dr. Volker Hohmann) at the University of Oldenburg - School of Medicine and Health sciences – Dept. of Medical Physics and Acoustics (see uol.de/sfb1330/) is seeking applicants for
The monthly funding is 800€ plus child allowances (400€ for the first, and 100€ for any further child). The stipends for the qualification fellowships are intended to support excellent students after the first year of their master studies to use the “Fast Track” option offered by the faculty. This Fast Track option provides the opportunity to excellent students holding a bachelor degree to directly pursue their PhD research from the second year of their research-focused master’s program. and allows obtaining both degrees in parallel, which essentially shortens the master phase to one year. The fellowships are granted overall for a maximum of 1 year.
The common goal of the different research projects in the CRC is to quantitatively characterize the benefit of hearing devices in real-life environments considering complex auditory scenes and audio-visual as well as user-device interactions. Another key element is the transfer of the obtained insights into applications and future hearing devices. The CRC and the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics provide an attractive research environment within international teams and most advanced research facilities. Both the Graduate Academy of the University of Oldenburg, the graduate school OLTECH, and the joint research academy of the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4All provide additional training units and their general support for students during their PhD.
We are looking for candidates with an excellent bachelor degree in acoustics, physics, bio-medical or electrical engineering, hearing research, technical audiology or related disciplines.
To increase the proportion of women in science, equally qualified female candidates will be given preference. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.
New stipends are periodically granted by the CRC board. Interested candidates should send an application, a CV and copies of their university diplomas to:
