PhD Studentship in Multiple Source Stream Integration in Human Listeners, Radboud University, Netherlands

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

As a PhD student you will participate in the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network Investigating Speech Processing In Realistic Environments (INSPIRE). This network provides research opportunities for 13 PhD students and 3 postdocs. You will become a member of an international team of researchers whose aim is to gain a better understanding of how listeners recognize speech, even under non-ideal circumstances. You will contribute to urgently needed solutions that help alleviate the serious communication problems that arise, especially for older and hearing-impaired persons, when different combinations of ’adverse’ conditions affect the speech processing system.

You should: – have a strong background in speech and/or language research and statistics; – have experience with setting-up and running psycholinguistic listening experiments; – be willing to spend several months at the School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, UK. Knowledge of programming would be an advantage.

Deadline: Before 15 February 2012
