University of Colorado Research Associate in Boulder, Colorado

A full-time research associate (post-doc) position is available in the Hearing Research Laboratory at the University of Colorado Boulder to work with Dr. Kathryn Arehart and Mr. James Kates and collaborators on topics related to auditory perception and hearing aids. The position is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIDCD) and the hearing-aid industry. The position involves cognitive and auditory testing as well as developing computational models of speech intelligibility and sound quality for adults wearing digital hearing aids. Our program of research considers variability in speech understanding among older listeners; how cognition contributes to that variability; and the extent to which those issues can be addressed with specific hearing aid signal-processing strategies. We also work on the development of objective metrics for the prediction of sound quality and speech intelligibility with hearing aids. The successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent research experience in a field related to auditory or cognitive science (audiology, psychology, engineering, gerontology, etc.), as well as strong computational, mathematical modeling, and signal processing skills. Strong communication and organizational skills are also required.
