The cluster of excellence Hearing4all: Models, Technology and Solutions 
for Diagnostics, Restoration and Support of Hearing  at the Carl von 
Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (in collaboration with Medizinische 
Hochschule Hannover and Leibniz Universität Hannover) is seeking to fill 
as soon as possible the position of a

Postdoctoral Research Associate  in the Field of Computational Auditory 

in the prospective Department of Neurosciences, Faculty of Medicine and 
Health Sciences.
The position is available from 1 November 2012, for initially 2 years, 
with prospect for continuation for up to 3 more years. Payment is 
depending on previous experience (German TV-L E13, full time). The 
position is suitable for part-time work.

A paramount goal of the cluster of excellence Hearing4all 
(www.hearing4all.de) is to transform audiology into an "exact" science 
based on the interplay between experiment and theory as well as between 
basic science and clinical research. In this framework the successful 
candidate is expected to contribute to one of the main research goals of 
the cluster, the development of a common model framework linking human, 
animal and model data. Working in close collaboration with experimental 
neuroscientists, clinicians and other theoreticians, tasks of the 
candidate will be
- to develop physiologically realistic models of auditory information 
processing (e.g. networks of spiking neurons)
- to analyze neural coding on different levels of the auditory system
- and to establish interfaces for the integration of statistical, 
effective and physiological model approaches present in the cluster.

Candidates are expected to have an academic university degree in the 
field of computer science, neuroscience, bioengineering, physics or a 
related discipline and have shown their ability to perform excellent 
scientific work, usually demonstrated by the outstanding quality of 
their Doctorate/PhD research and a good publication record. We are 
seeking candidates with strong analytical, modeling and programming 
skills. Preference will be given to applicants with neuroscience 
background. In particular knowledge about the auditory system of animals 
and / or humans would be a clear advantage.

The University of Oldenburg strives to increase the proportion of women 
in science, so we especially encourage female candidates to apply. 
Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.
Please send your application including a cover letter, CV, list of 
potential referees, links to recent publications and copies of 
certificates for academic grades to Carl von Ossietzky Universität 
Oldenburg, Fakultät V, Exzellenzcluster "Hearing4all" , Prof. Dr. Dr. 
Birger Kollmeier, 26111 Oldenburg or as an email attachment to the 
office of the cluster of excellence (karin.klink at uni-oldenburg.de). 
Application by email is preferred.
Prof. Jutta Kretzberg (jutta.kretzberg at uni-oldenburg.de) can be 
contacted for further questions regarding the position.
Selection of candidates will start November 1st and last until the 
position is filled.
