Applications are invited for the above post based in the Scottish Section of the University of Nottingham’s Hearing Sciences department, located in Glasgow. This is a thriving centre of research into how people use their hearing, how hearing loss affects them, and how new technologies could help.

The successful candidate will assist researchers studying how people process speech when listening in conversation, and how this differs between people with normal and impaired hearing. The ultimate aim of this work is to better support individuals with hearing loss. Duties will include running experiments using a variety of experimental techniques, from eye tracking and electroencephalography (EEG) to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Each of these techniques will allow us to understand different aspects of speech processing, and training will be provided (though prior experience is a plus). As well as working with participants, the post-holder will have the opportunity to search and distil literature, process data, and write reports of our findings. 

Candidates must have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or a related area. Someone that enjoys working with people, can communicate well, has good statistical and software skills (and a desire to learn more), and that can pick up new techniques confidently will excel in this role. Additional essential and desirable criteria are listed in the Role Profile.

This post is full-time (36.25 Hours) and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 24 months. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr. Lauren Hadley: Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
