The project ”Model Based Blind Source Separation for Auditory Scene Analysis“ within the 
transregional collaborative research center “The Active Auditory System” (SFB/TRR 31, 
www.sfb-trr31.uni-oldenburg.de) offers a position for a

Physicist, applied Mathematician, Electrical Engineer or Computer Scientist

at the Ph.D. student level. Salary and social benefits will conform to the provisions of the 
Collective Agreement for the Lower Saxony Civil Service (TV-L, E13 50 %). The appointment 
is until June 2013 with further extension subject to project renewal.

The ideal candidate will be highly qualified in quantitative approaches from machine learning and 
statistical signal processing. She or he will have a keen interest in auditory neuroscience and 
psychophysics. Experience in scientific programming and excellent English are essential.

The position is located within the Medical Physics Unit of the Dept. of Physics, University of Oldenburg, 
Germany, see www.medi.uni-oldenburg.de. The successful candidate will work in the Statistical Signal 
Models Group, which conducts research to build statistical signal processing and machine learning 
models for speech and audio applications, and collaborate with the Psycho-acoustic Models Group.

The transregional collaborative research center “The Active Auditory System” (SFB/Transregio 
“Das aktive Gehör“) jointly operated by research groups at the University of Oldenburg, University of 
Magdeburg and the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology at Magdeburg studies the mechanisms of 
auditory scene analysis and their application to health and technology. Pursued numerical and 
experimental approaches include signal processing and psychoacoustic modeling for speech and 
audio analysis, EEG, MEG and fMRI analysis and in vivo recording in the auditory pathway.

The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the percentage of female employees in the field of 
science and encourages applications from female candidates. Handicapped applicants will be given 
preference in case of equal qualifications.
