Funding is available for one PhD position in Southampton, UK, starting from 1 October 2010 or
soon after.

 

The project aims to investigate the brain plasticity due to
electrical stimulation of cochlear implants, and its influence on the hearing
capability of patients with deafness. The applicants are expected to contribute
to the theoretical and numerical modelling of the auditory processing system, modelling
of plasticity in deafness and its treatment by cochlear implants.

 

A strong background in computational neuroscience and/or
signal processing is required. Candidates with a master degree in a related
field of applied mathematics, computation, or signal processing would suit
ideally.

 

The ISVR has an international reputation for research. The
successful candidate will work within the Hearing and Balance Centre (HABC), which
has highly motivated, first class research students researching in the area of
audiology, speech processing and biomedical engineering. See http://www.isvr.soton.ac.uk/
for further details of research activities within the HABC. 

 

Studentship: Students should meet the EPSRC residency
criteria to be eligible for this studentship. The studentship covers University
tuition fees (at EU/UK level**) and provides a tax-free bursary of
approximately £13,290 per year, rising annually in line with the UK Government (EPSRC)
recommended rates.

  

Entry requirements: This multi-disciplinary studentship is
available to candidates with the equivalent of a first class or upper-second
class degree in a related discipline (e.g., neuroscience, engineering or
computation). The research requires good communication and an ability to work
within a team and collaborate across a range of disciplines.

 

How to apply: 

 

Please send a full CV with contact details of two referees
together with a personal statement to:

 

Dr Shouyan Wang, Hearing and Balance Centre, Institute of Sound
and Vibration Research, Building 13, University
