Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Germany
Department of Neuroscience, is offering a
PhD student position in Auditory Neuroscience
Salary will be according to TV level E 13 (65 %).
We expect the position to be available from September 2018 for a period of three years.
We are part of a vibrant community of auditory and sensory neuroscience groups in Oldenburg, joined in the Cluster of Excellence "Hearing4All" (http://hearing4all.eu/EN/) and the Research Centre Neurosensory Science. The PhD candidate will participate in the structured graduate programs of the associated Graduate School OLTECH (www.oltech.org) in a joint Oldenburg/Groningen PhD program.
We are looking for a PhD candidate who will study the anatomical change in the inner ear associated with noise-induced and age-related hearing loss. A special focus is on the synaptopathy associated with "hidden hearing loss". The work will be carried out in a collaboration between the labs of Prof. Georg Klump (www.uol.de/en/animalphysiology/), Prof. Christine Köppl (www.uol.de/en/cochlea/), both at Oldenburg University, and Prof. Sonja Pyott at the University Medical Center Groningen (thepyottlab.com).
Applicants must hold an academic university degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in a relevant discipline (e.g. Biology, Neuroscience, Veterinary Science). You should be enthusiastic about doing a PhD. Basic knowledge and practical experience with histological techniques is a distinct advantage.
