We seek a motivated
Research scientist / Research audiologist / Postdoc (m/f/d)
(full-time TV-L E13 position until 31.10.2021)
in the field of translational auditory research with bimodal CI users
This position is embedded within the BMBF-funded project "Novel Bimodal Stimulation Techniques" and is suitable for part-time work. The work will be in close collaboration with the Oldenburg University ENT clinic - one of the project partners.
The goal of the project is to overcome interaural stimulation mismatches in bimodal stimulation. The candidate will use psychoacoustics to assess interaural mismatch and develop methods to overcome these.
Collaboration with the third project partner (MED-EL) as well as with Oldenburg-based HörTech and the clinical innovation center for medical technology KIZMO) ensures that the project is going to have a strong translational component toward fitting tools and technology development.
In addition, the position offers opportunities to collaborate and associate with the DFG collaborative research center "Hearing Acoustics" (uol.de/en/sfb1330) as well as with the cluster of excellence "Hearing4All" (hearing4all.eu/en/). The Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics offers an international scientific environment as well as access to world-class research facilities (uol.de/en/mediphysics-acoustics).
Applicants for the position must hold an academic university degree (master or equivalent) in hearing technology, physics, audiology, or a related discipline. Applicants should have a PhD or AuD, or be in the process of finalizing their dissertation.
Applicants need to have theoretical background. They must be able to set up, conduct, analyze, and disseminate the results of psychoacoustic experiments with hearing impaired subjects. They must have experience with direct stimulation of cochlear implant users either in a clinical or in a research setting. In addition to proficiency in English, at least elementary knowledge of the German language is required before starting the position.
The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of female employees in the field of science. Therefore, female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. In accordance to § 21 Section 3 NHG, female candidates with equal qualifications will be preferentially considered. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification.
