Description:

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 the framework provided by the
cluster the successful candidate is expected to contribute to the research
goals of the cluster to task group 3 "Functional Characterization of the
individual" and research area A "Improving Diagnostics for a Better
Individualized Treatment" as well as to task group 5 "Personalizing Hearing
Devices", e.g. by studying the role of sentence complexity and grammar in
understanding speech in different populations and under different
conditions (i.e. silence, noise).

Candidates are expected to have an academic university degree in the field
of (psycho)- linguistics, psychology (with a specialization in
speech/language processing) 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 experience in statistical analysis as well
as extensive knowledge in at least one of the following methods/areas:
online sentence processing, reaction time studies, eye tracking, ERP.
Matlab skills, and/or experience with E-prime will be helpful, as well as
working knowledge of German. Since the position entails close
interdisciplinary cooperation with several other disciplines (audiology,
psychology, physics), the willingness and ability to integrate methods,
concepts and issues of the ‚other' discipline into theories, concepts and
methods current in one's own are required for successful work in this project.

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 (marked with position nr. I) including a cover
letter, CV, list of potential referees, links to recent publications and
copies of certificates for academic grades to the mailing address below or
as a email attachment to the office of the cluster of excellence via the
application email address below (application by email is preferred). Prof.
Esther Ruigendijk (contact email address below) can be contacted for
further questions regarding the position. The application deadline is
October 31st.
