Dear colleagues,

Thank you for forwarding this advertisement for two positions at the 
University of Leuven, Belgium, to any interested party.

We have a *PhD and Post-doc position*on a joint project between the 
research group ExpORL, Dept. Neurosciences (Tom Francart) and the 
research group ESAT-STADIUS, Dept. Electrical Engineering (Alexander 
Bertrand). The long-term goal of this project is to design smart hearing 
devices that can be controlled by the brain.

Topic: EEG and audio processing for neuro-steered hearing aids:

·adaptive signal processing and/or machine learning methods to perform 
auditory attention decoding, and use these in EEG experiments

·a brain-computer interface set-up for real-time (closed loop) attention 
decoding with EEG and perform experiments on subjects

Candidates need a *degree in engineering, computer science,* physics, or 
similar, and good machine learning, signal processing and programming 
skills. Excellent English proficiency is required as well as a strong 
interest in auditory perception and willingness to work in an 
interdisciplinary team. Knowledge of human neurophysiology and 
psychology of hearing is a strong plus.
