2 PhD positions in Sensory Neurotechnology

The newly founded Chair for Sensory Neuroengineering at the new Department Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering is looking for two PhD students to work on innovative projects. In close collaboration with clinical and industrial partners, the Chair researches on the neural foundations of hearing, as well as on new technology for better treatments of hearing impairment. The PhD students will develop and apply AI methods to analyse neurological data on human speech processing. They will also develop AI methods to construct audiovisual speech signals for better speech comprehension.

To apply, please send a letter detailing your motivation, a CV, copies of your degrees and details of two referees. Please combine all documents into a single pdf and send them per email with subject “Application PhD student” to Prof. Dr. Tobias Reichenbach (tobias.j.reichenbach(at)fau.de).
