Research Associate (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on May 27, 2015.

A Research Associate is being sought to work in the laboratory of Professor Brian C.J. Moore in Cambridge on a project aiming to determine the optimum number of channels in multi-channel compression hearing aids. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in psychoacoustics, audiology, hearing science, or a closely related discipline. Experience in running psychoacoustic and speech perception tests is highly desirable. Familiarity with hearing aids and the fitting of hearing aids is also highly desirable. Applicants should interact well with experimental participants, and should be sympathetic to the needs of older hearing-impaired participants. Applicants should be able to organise data and perform statistical analyses. Some programming skills are desirable, preferably including familiarity with Matlab. The work will involve recruiting experimental participants, setting up auditory experiments, running experiments using hearing-impaired participants, analysing data, preparing figures for publication, and collaboration in writing papers for publication.

The starting date for the position is 1st September, 2015, although a slightly later date might be negotiated. The work will be conducted in central Cambridge, in the Downing Site.
