Description: Postdoctoral Research in Humans and Animals with Cochlear Implants JOB SUMMARY The Auditory Prosthesis Perception and Psychophysics Laboratory at the University of Michigan, Kresge Hearing Research Institute is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research fellow interested in a rewarding area of cochlear implant research. The overarching goal of our work is to examine the importance of biological mechanisms underlying electrical hearing and use this knowledge to improve speech recognition in human cochlear-implant recipients. Our work includes unique and cutting-edge work in cochlear-implanted guinea pigs, mice, and humans using psychophysical and electrophysiological measures. In parallel, we use gene therapy procedures, genetic modifications, and histological measures in animals, and CT imaging and speech-recognition measures in humans to give a more complete understanding of the health of the cochlea and its functional implications in our research subjects. We seek motivated applicants who are interested in conducting primarily research in humans, but there is opportunity to also be involved in our animal research projects. The primary role of the individual would be to work on a newly funded grant which examines the role of cochlear health in central and cognitive processing, and uses EEG and cognitive measures among individuals with and without cochlear implants. Experience with EEG is an advantage, but not a requirement.Our Laboratory is part of the Kresge Hearing Research Institute (KHRI) in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Michigan Medical School. Michigan Medicine was recently listed first in the nation among Ear, Nose & Throat Departments by U.S. News & World Report. We have a large and active clinical cochlear implant population, and close to 3,000 patients have been implanted in our program to date.

Description:  Applications are invited to fill a Post-doctoral position in the Auditory and Communication Systems Laboratory in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania (PI Steven Eliades). The laboratory focuses on sensory coding in the auditory system during both perception and vocal production, with primary efforts in marmoset monkeys. We have particular interest in auditory coding in naturalistic environments and interactive social behaviors. Marmosets are an increasingly popular model system in neuroscience, with the advantage of being a non-human primate, readily used in a variety of neuroscience and behavioral contexts, but with the potential to take advantage of modern genetic and optical techniques. We also collaborate with other clinicians in the department to apply these methods to understanding hearing and speech in patients with communication disorders (hearing loss, vocal disorders). The work combines auditory psychophysics, speech sciences, motor control, sensory coding, and ensemble neural recordings. Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent degree) related to neuroscience, engineering, physics, psychology, or a similar field. Preferred candidates have a background in animal behavior and/or neural recording. The intellectual environment of the University of Pennsylvania is outstanding for computational auditory neuroscience. The Hearing Sciences Center is a multi-investigator group that identifies neuronal correlates of hearing and communication at multiple scales of interrogation, using state-of-the-art computational and causal techniques. We collaborate with the Penn Computational Neuroscience Initiative, a center with faculty interested in systems and computational approaches to neuroscience, and the Penn Center for Neuroscience and Therapeutics, interested in translating neuroscience into clinical care. Candidates will have access and mentorship from faculty in the Hearing Sciences Center and inter-disciplinary faculty throughout the institution. Appointment will be for 12-months, renewable annually. Salary will be commensurate with experience and consistent with NIH NRSA stipends. We anticipate a Fall 2019 start date.
