Research Associate

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Apr 23, 2015.

A Research Associate is being sought to work on a project on "Machine learning for hearing aids: Intelligent processing and fitting", funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. This is a 3-year fixed-term position. The project involves a collaboration between Dr. Richard Turner (Engineering) and Professor Brian C.J. Moore (Psychology). The Research Associate will be based in the laboratory of Professor Moore but will frequently visit the laboratory of Dr. Turner. Both laboratories are located in central Cambridge.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in psychoacoustics, audiology, hearing science, audio engineering, signal processing, or a closely related discipline. The work involves the development of auditory models, including models of hearing loss, and the use of those models to guide characterization of the impaired auditory system and fitting of hearing aids. The work also involves setting up listening tests, recruiting and testing hearing-impaired participants, analysing the results, and contributing to the writing of papers for publication.

The following skills and experience are desirable: programming skills, especially in Matlab; experience in running psychoacoustic and speech perception tests; experience in auditory modeling; familiarity with hearing aids and the fitting of hearing aids; ability to interact well with experimental participants and be sympathetic to the needs of older hearing-impaired participants; ability to perform statistical analyses and prepare figures.

The starting date for the position is 1st October, 2015. The position will last for 3 years and is not renewable.
