[beasiswa] [info] Fully funded 3-year PhD position: Irrelevant sound effect in open office space: neural signature with normal and impaired hearing


Dear colleagues,

I am advertising a fully-funded 3-year PhD position on a very exciting
project in the beautiful city of Lyon, France. If you know of any person
who could be interested, please pass on this information to them.

Details of the position can be found below.

Thanks a lot!

Irrelevant sound effect in open office space:
neural signature with normal and impaired hearing

Fully funded 3-year PhD position
Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, CNRS/Université Lyon 1, Lyon, France

Topic — In open office spaces, workers are submitted to an ambient noise
that is demonstrably distracting. This phenomenon is described in the
scientific literature as the Irrelevant Sound Effect. The actual causes
of this effect are misunderstood, which makes finding adequate solutions
particularly difficult. In this project we propose to use
electrophysiological markers of sound perception and speech
intelligibility — measured with electroencephalography, EEG — to uncover
what properties of the ambient office noise are triggering the
distracting effect. We will then use these same markers to understand
how hearing impairment affects work in open office spaces.

Requirements — Candidates must have a Master degree in biomedical
engineering, physics, signal processing, audiology, psychology,
neuroscience or a related field. Experience with EEG is strongly
desired. Programming experience, especially with Matlab or Python, is
expected. Interest in working in an international environment and
interacting with people with hearing impairment are recommended.
Proficiency in English is required. Proficiency or willingness to learn
French is preferable.

Details — The PhD will be supervised by Etienne Parizet (Laboratoire
Vibrations Acoustique, INSA Lyon) and Etienne Gaudrain (Lyon
Neuroscience Research Center, CNRS/Université Lyon 1). Prospective
candidates are invited to get in touch with Etienne Gaudrain at
< <>>. The
project is funded by CeLyA [], with
potential additional support from partners amongst the hearing-aid industry.

The offered salary is 1680€ net per month. The PhD programme in Lyon
offers multiple courses and opportunities to spend part of the PhD in
one of our partner European universities (e.g. University of Groningen, NL).

Starting date: before 1st of December 2016.

To apply — Send a copy of your CV including the names and contact
information of two references (one of them preferably your advisor from
Master's or another research project) and a short motivation letter to
Dr Etienne Gaudrain <

Deadline for applications: Friday 20th of May 2016, 23:59 ECT.
Provisional interview dates: 1-2 June 2016.
