Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Auditory Research
U.S. Army Research Laboratory
|Deadline||April 15, 2012|
|Date Posted||March 18, 2012|
Fellowship/Auditory Research: Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Auditory Research. Two postdoctoral fellowships in auditory research are available at the Human Research and Engineering Directorate, U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. Research fellows are sought to conduct research in two specialized areas, that of auditory change detection and the modeling of auditory performance. The successful applicants will be members of a multidisciplinary research team. Auditory change detection research shall be centered on ways to reduce the auditory information available to enemy forces about squad activities by minimizing and manipulating one's (individual or squad) auditory/audiovisual signature. Modeling research is required to correlate the impact of the physical effects of a Soldier's equipment and acoustic environment to changes in auditory performance as measured through behavioral performance on measures of detection, recognition and localization. The successful applicant should have a doctoral degree in acoustics, psychology, audio technology, audiology, hearing science, computer science, or other related discipline; be a U.S. citizen; and have or be able to obtain a secret security clearance. Familiarity with digital audio and programming expertise in Matlab, Visual Basic, or C++ is a plus but not required. The initial contract is for a twelve month period with the possibility of extension for another twelve-month period. The stipend is determined according to the OPM salary table for GS-12 depending on experience. More information about the position may be obtained from Dr. Angelique Scharine at the address given below. Formal applications including a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references should be sent to: Angelique Scharine, Ph.D., Senior Research Psychologist, U.S. Army Research Laboratory, RDRL-HRS-D/B-520, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland 21005-5425; voice: 410-278-5957; fax: 410-278-3587; e-mail: email@example.com.
