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
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.
