The Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is seeking to fill the position of a
Research Associate (m/f/d)
in the Signal Processing Group at the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics. The position is available from May 1, 2020 until October 31, 2022, with a possible extension for 3 years. Salary will be according to TV-L E13 (100%). The position is suitable for part-time work.
In the framework of the cluster of excellence Hearing4all the successful candidate is expected to contribute to the research goals of Research Thread II "IT-based diagnostics and rehabilitation" by developing and evaluating individualized signal processing solutions for virtual and real hearing devices. More in particular, in the envisaged project the main objective is to automatically optimize the parameter settings of acoustical signal processing algorithms for the individual user based on machine learning.
Candidates are required to have an academic university degree (Master or equivalent) in hearing technology and audiology, electrical engineering, physics or a related discipline, and have shown their ability to perform excellent scientific work, typically demonstrated by the outstanding quality of their doctoral thesis and an excellent publication record. We are seeking candidates with extensive knowledge in at least two of the following research fields: speech/audio signal processing, machine learning and auditory perception. In particular, for the envisaged project experience with hearing aid algorithms is beneficial. Excellent programming (e.g. Matlab, python), English language skills and experience with subjective listening experiments are mandatory.
The Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of women in science. Therefore, equally qualified female candidates will be given preference. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.
Please send your application (ref. SP194), including a letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, list of publications and a copy of the university diplomas and grades, to Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Fakultät VI, Abt.
