The Acoustics Group at the University of Oldenburg is looking for a
(75% of full time TV-L E 13, 3 years)
in auditory perception in reverberant environments
We are looking for candidates with an academic university degree (Master or equivalent) in physics, or a related discipline, to work on a three-year PhD project. The project focusses on auditory perception in reverberant (virtual) environments with the goal to evaluate the applicability of simulated acoustic environments for speech perception research, and to investigate how auditory perception capabilities in reverberant conditions develop across the life span.
The acoustics group offers an attractive environment with research covering auditory perception, computational auditory scene analysis, new technologies for sound reproduction, and sound quality research for automobile and aviation. The University of Oldenburg is known for its wide range of activities in hearing research and offers an excellent environment for a PhD project in auditory perception.
The successful candidate is expected to conduct research in auditory perception leading to scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and to take on some teaching responsibilities.
The University of 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.
Interested candidates can contact Steven van de Par for more information and should send an application, CV, copy of their university diplomas, and contact information for 1 or 2 references to:
